Letters from 
the Presidents 

For a new student to Cen- 
tenary, the Fall is the onset of a 
college career or the continuation 
of one at a new school. The Fall is 
also a time when freshmen and 
transfer students discover what 
Centenary has to offer in addition 
to academics. There are dorm 
councils, the performing arts, 
intramurals, clubs and societies, 
a Greek fraternal system, and 
the Student Government 
Association (SGA). 

At Centenary the SGA is more 
than a governing body. Though 
the Senate serves in capacities 
ranging from facilitating 
changes in school policies to 
acting as a liaison between 
students and the administration, 
such events as campus cookouts, 
Fall Ball, and weekly movies are 
sponsored by the SGA. The 
Yoncopin, KSCL, The 

Conglomerate, and Pegasus also 
receive Senate support. Com- 
mittees such as Forums, En- 
tertainment, and Publicity are 
SGA responsibilities as well. 

Considering the importance of 
the Senate on campus, it is 
essential to have productive and 
capable members. New students 
are often a source of these 
qualities. During September, the 
Senate will be searching for 
committee chairpersons, com- 
mittee members, and Freshmen 
senators. Involvement in Cen- 
tenary can make the difference 
between a college career and 
four years at school.

Student Government Association 

Centenary is a community of 
learners. That it tries to be truly 
a community, with a spirit of 
friendliness, an inclusiveness, 
even a kind of surrogate family 
atmosphere, I hope you will soon 
know, personally and gladly. 

And that, as we are all alive, 
we are all learners, is obvious: 
students, teachers, staff are each 
unique, but each is in dialogue 
and in process, sharing insights 
and experience. 

Part of education is formal. 
Formal education requires 
curricula, procedures, even, 
some regulation! Bear with us, 
and with them, when they seem 
not to fit perfectly. Talk with us 
about it. 

But much education is in- 
formal. It occurs in the "spaces" 
— in coffee-shop conversations, 
in the cafeteria with a faculty 
member, in a corner of the 

And self-confidence in the use 
of knowledge, comes in both 

So, I welcome you warmly to a 
community of learners: we are 
glad you are part of us. 

Dr. DonAld Webb, 
President of the College

As the word turns 

A lackadaisical lexicon 

By Clay Robertson 
Editor of The Conglomerate 

The following is a little dic- 
tionary of words that will un- 
doubtedly come up in con- 
versation during your first weeks 
at Centenary. 

Academics — Unfortunately 
what we're here for. It generally 
gets in the way of partying. 

Althea — Centenary's mascot 
and occasional guard dog. 

Basement — The cultural and 
academic hole under the library. 

C.P. — A course designed to 
enrich the cultural perspectives 
of new students, but which often 
leaves them culturally per- 

C.S.C.C. — The God Squad, 
enclaved in the Smith Building. 

YouVe got a friend 

Ybur Resident Assistant (RA) 
can become your stand-in 
mother, father, sister, brother, or 
even your best friend. 

According to Dick Anders, 
dean of students, "New students 
should make a special effort to 
get to know the RA's. The 
residence staff will be making 
the same effort, because in order 
for the relationship to be a good 
one, it must be a two-party ef- 

RA's are the managers of the 
dorms. It is their responsibility to 
help students move in and un- 
derstand dorm and college 

Students are encouraged to 
contact their RA *to clarify 
policies, answer questions, and 
help solve problems. No problem 
is considered too small - or too 
big. With a little effort, and a 

little time, the RA can become 
one of a student's best and most 
valuable friend. 

Resident Assistants for 1983-84

Have you heard the news? 

The Centenary Bookstore has a 

new manager. 

Come by and see 

what's new. 


Robert Ed Taylor, Chaplain 
and Associate Professor of 
Religion at Centenary College, 
will have four articles published 
in the Adult Leader during the 
1983-83 season. 

The articles, written at the 
request of Ms. Eleanor Moore, 
editor of the Adult Leader, are 
entitled The Authority of the 
Bible, The Inspiration of the 
Bible, The Interpretation of the 
Bible, and The Importance of the 
Old Testament. The first article 
will appear in the September 
issue of the periodical, which is 
published in Nashville, Tenn. 

The articles are designed to 
introduce the biblical studies that 
form a part of the Uniform Series 
of the International Sunday 
School Lessons that appear in the 
Adult Student. 

A member of the Centenary 
faculty since 1961, Chaplain 
Taylor recently completed a 
sabbatical semester. He did 
research at Perkins School of 
Theology's Bridwill Library and 
completed a seminar on 
Christology at Austin 
Presbyterian Theological 
Seminary. He will return to full- 
time teaching in the fall semester 
at Centenary. 


Neil Johnson, instructor of 
photography at Centenary and a 
professional photographer, will 
again be taking The Yoncopin

announced in the next few weeks. 

As in the past, Yoncopin pic- 
tures may be made in the 
location of your choice on 
campus, and they may be made 
individually or in groups. 
However, this year we will limit 
group pictures to include only one 
class year per group. In other 
words, all seniors, all juniors, all 
sophomores, or all freshmen 
would be eligible, but not a mixed 
group of sophomores and juniors 
in one group picture.

The early student gets the classes, and Summer Orientation offered the 
perfect opportunity for incoming freshmen to do just that. Some 130 
freshmen and their parents were on hand for the June event. 


Fraternity life at Centenary offers a young man op- 
portunities to become actively involved with campus and 
community life. Throughout the year fraternities participate 
in many community, cultural, and social activities. The 
Pa jama, Mafia, Graveyard, and Jungle parties are just a 
few of the social activities sponsored by the fraternities on 

The fraternities also spend time helping with various 
charitable activities as well, including Open Ear and the 
Christian Service Program. They also participate in 
numerous campus activities, such as Homecoming, High 
School Weekend, and graduation. 

Formal or "closed," Rush begins Sunday when the In- 
terfraternity Council (IFC) hosts a banquet for rushees in the 
South Dining Hall of Bynum Commons. Informal, or "open," 
Rush begins Monday, Sept. 5, at the conclusion of formal 
rush week, and continues throughout the semester. 

If a rushee decides not to pledge a fraternity during the 
week of formal rush he can participate in informal or "open" 
rush which gives him more time to make a decision about 
pledging a fraternity.

Greek life for women at Centenary is a great way for an 
incoming student to meet many of the active women on 
campus and become acquainted with the many facets of 
Centenary's student life. 

Whether or not you decide to become a part of the Greek 
system, Rush provides a valuable experience of meeting 
people and making friendships that will carry throughout 
your college days. Both of the women's sororities on 
campus, Chi Omega and Zeta Tau Alpha, offer their 
members close bonds, lasting friendships, service projects, 
and social activities to help develop a more well-rounded

At approximately 12:05 p.m., 
Tuesday, August 30, Jack Reagan 
and several follow choir members 
climbed the stairs to the "choir 
loft" located in the renovated attic 
of Mickle Hall. The choir was 
scheduled to perform at 12:15 for 
Mr. and Mrs. Seisi Kato of Japan, 
where Mr. Kato presides as 
Chairman of the Board of Toyota. 
Jack and his friends were 
checking on the possibility of a 
pre-performance rehearsal, but 
they found more than they had 

As the Centenary College Choir 
finished a Gershwin medley and 
took their bows for their foreign 
fans, John Yiunitsas had a rather 
important message for director 
Will Andress. "I don't want to ruin 
your day," John said, "but 
Mickle's burning." 

John Reagan had set off the fire 
alarm immediately after spotting 
signs of fire in the loft. "There was 
smoke coming from under the 
door and the noise sounded like 
the roof was ready to cave in," he 

Within 10 minutes seven 
companies of the Shreveport Fire 
Department were pulling into 
position, among them 1 platform 
truck, 1 ladder truck, and 2 rescue 

According to Fire Chief Roy J. 
Rothell, the fire was a difficult 

English Language Center 
closes its doors 

and slow one to fight. Because of 
the possibility of nxious gases 
from the chemistry labs on the 
third floor, the firemen wore 
masks and used their entire air 
supply before they got the blaze 
under control. 

The damage was extensive, 
destroying the entire attic area 
and inevitably causing water and 
smoke damage to the floors below. 
Actual monetary costs of the fire 
were unavailable. 

Perhaps most tragic of all was 
the loss of irreplaceable 
memorabilia belonging to the 
Centenary College Choir. 
Scrapbooks dating back to the 
choir's inception in 1942, and some 
unduplicated pictures of the 
choir's international concerts 
were lost. Some older costumes 
and many volumes from the 
choir's extensive music library 
were also destroyed, though all 
music stored in file boxes suffered 
little damage. 

The fire was determined to have 
started in a storage closet yet it's 
cause is, as yet, uncertain. 
Though not suspected, a routine 
investigation for signs of arson 
will be made. 

The loss of the choir loft is 
sorely felt among the members of 
the choir and much of the student 
body, though for some, life goes on 
as usual. As one bystander 
commented, "The building 
burned. These things happen."

Editor of The Conglomerate 

The end of the Summer 
Semester of 1983 marked the end 
of Centenary's English Language 
Center (E.L.C.). Designed to 
provide language skills and 
cultural orientation for 

international students who enroll 
in United States' colleges, the 
E.L.C. finally succumbed to 
financial difficulties which had 
plagued it in recent years. 

Originally established for 
income, according to Dr. Dorothy 
Gwin, Dean of the College, the 
English Language Center had, in 
lucent years, been unable to pay 
)ts own expenses, and was going to 

be a drain on the regular 
undergraduate program. 

Problems involving E.L.C. 
recruitment and the E.L.C. staff 
can also be attributed to money. 
Traditionally, Centenary has 
relied on "word-of-mouth" 
recruitment, and recruitment 
through various embassies for 
students for the English Language 
Center. When this method failed to 
bring a sufficient number of 
foreign students to Centenary, 
direct recruitment was 

attempted, in a last ditch effort to 
save the program. The college's 
attempt at direct recruitment 
involved a trip to Venezuela by 
former director of the E.L.C,

In conclusion, The

That is a fact which I cannot 
stress enough. While I have stated 
the duties of The Conglomerate, 
we must not forget the

While looking through Bartlett's 
Familiar Quotations for a 
quotation about journalism or 
newspapers to include in this 
column, I stumbled upon a 
quotation which sums up my 
feelings about The Conglomerate. 
It appeared in a Chicago 
newspaper, and it goes something 
like this — "It is a newspaper's 
duty to print the news and raise 

To that quotation, I will make 
one addition. I firmly believe that 
it is the duty of any newspaper, 
great or small, to print the truth, 
in a manner as unbiased as 
humanly possible. It is my hope 
that a student reading any news

Toyota chairman 
visits Centenary 

Seisi Kato, retired chairman of the Board of Toyota Motor 
Sales Co., Ltd., was an honored guest on the Centenary 
campus Tuesday. 

His visit was highlighted with a concert by the Centenary 
College Choir, which he hosted only two months ago in Tokyo. 

He also had an opportunity to see Mrs. Maida Mickle, a 
longtime friend. Mr. Kato credits her husband, former 
Centenary President Joe Mickle, with his involvement in the 
automotive industry. It was Dr. Mickle, then teaching in 
Japan, who got the young graduate a job at GM Japan. "This 
unexpected entry into the automotive industry marked the 
beginning of a half a century of personal devotion to motor 
vehicles and a devotion to the Mickle family," Mr. Kato said. 

This was Mr. Kato's second visit to the College; last May he 
spoke at Centenary's 7th National Free Enterprise

Gold Dome repairs progress 

Thursday, September 1, 1983— THE CONGLOMERATE— Page 3 

By Clay Robertson 
Editor of The Conglomerate 

As the 1983-84 basketball season 
draws near, work continues on the 
Gold Dome, in an effort to install 
the Dome's new fiberglass ceiling. 

In a recent interview, Dr. 
Darrell Loyless, Vice President of 
the College, reported that the 
Dome would be ready in time for 
the first game of the basketball 
season, barring any unforeseen 
difficulties. Originally it had been 
hoped that repairs would be 
completed by Oct. 15, the first day 
of team practice, but those hopes 
proved, however, to be 
"unrealistic." It is now the 
Administration's hope that work 
will be completed in time for the 
basketball teams to be able to 
have some practice time in the 
Gold Dome before the regular 
season begins. 

The diamond-shaped panels 
which will compose the Dome's 
new ceiling arrived Aug. 29, and 
will mark the beginning of the 
next phase of what Dr. Loyless 
described as a "monumental 
project." Though the panels 
arrived later than expected, thus 
delaying the entire project, the 
repair work is only a few days 
behind schedule. According to Dr. 
Loyless, such a small delay could 
be called "a miracle." The next 
phase of the project will involve 
the installation of the panels, 
much like a "big puzzle." 

The Gold Dome's new ceiling 

covered with vinyl. It will also be 
more economical than the old 
blow-in ceiling. According to Dr. 
Loyless, the Dome's new ceiling 
will hold heating and cooling 
better as well as being more light 
reflective (providing a 30 percent 
savings in electricity). 

There will, of course, be some 
scheduling changes involving

question "How did all of this 
happen?" Well, we are pleased to 
announce that the Coffeehouse is 
under new management, with a 
manager who remembers being a 
customer, and the result is a 

E. L. C 

(Continued from page 1) 

Miss Dorothy Rambin. Miss 
Rambin's trip included visits to 
several private schools in 
Venezuela and lead to one 
recruitment for Centenary. 
Another problem which has beset 
the English Language Center 
involves its faculty. As students of 
varying levels of knowledge and 
proficiency enter the E.L.C., it 
becomes necessary to maintain a 
separate faculty for each level of 

The problems ofthe English 
Language Center did not cease 
once students were recruited. 
While regular undergraduate 
programs last for four years, 
students in the E.L.C. generally 
attend for from 9 months to one 
year. This makes for little carry 
over from year to year within the 
E.L.C. All-too-often, E.L.C. 
students do not continue their 
education at Centenary following 
the completion of their program in 
the English Language Center. In 
many cases, the students' native 

country chooses their major for 
them, and will not accept 
Centenary's degree program. 

It was with these problems in 
mind that the Personnel and 
Economic Policy Committee 
(P.E.P.) began its deliberations 
concerning the future of the 
English Language Center in 
January, 1983. The P.E.P. 
Committee withheld a decision on 
the matter until late Spring, when 
projected E.L.C. enrollment 
failed to meet levels necessary for 
the continuation of the program. It 
was at that point the decision was 
made to close the E.L.C. following 
the conclusion of the Summer 

Centenary will, according to 
Dean Gwin, still attempt to recruit 
international students, despite the 
closing of the English Language 
Center. Recruitment will once 
again involve word-of-mouth and 
embassy recruitment, and will be 
for our regular undergraduate

it easier for you to get what you

introducing some yummy new 
products for your eating and

incredible variety of Dannon

Workers erect scaffolding inside the Gold Dome where the ceiling is

Choir optimistic about clean-up 

By Carole Powell 

Over 30 members of the 
Centenary College Choir met at 
Murrell's Restaurant (Murrell's 
treat) Tuesday afternoon less 
than two hours after the choir loft 
on the fourth floor of Mickle Hall 
was gutted by fire. 

They met with choir director 
Will Andress and Centenary 
College President Donald Webb to 
discuss the losses sustained in the 

Dr. Webb told those assembled 
that the choir must set the mood 
for the College in its reaction tc 
the fire and encouraged the 
singers to keep their spirits up. 

When questioned about the 
fire's effect upon the group, Dr. 
Andress said that no scheduled 
events will be cancelled. "The 
playhouse has offered us their 
facilities to rehearse and to store 
the wardrobes and other things 
that were in the choir truck at the 
time of the fire," he said. "It will 
be difficult to learn "Rhapsody" 
music because all the copies of 
music were destroyed except 
three sets — mine and those of the 
two accompanists . " 

Most choir members were 
optimistic and in good spirits as 
they awaited the fire 
department's permission to enter 
the loft to begin clean-up and 
salvage work. 

The choir will sing Thursday at 
the Media Luncheon in the SUB. 
"We'll have a good cry today, but 
start cleaning up tonight," Dr.*

K.S.C.L. robbery 
remains a mystery 

by Clay Robertson 
Editor of The Conglomerate 

Sometime between 8:15 p.m., 
September 1, and 1:30 p.m., 
September 2, K.S.C.L., Cen- 
tenary's student radio station, 
was broken into by an as yet 
unknown culprit. 

Janitors cleaning the second 
floor of the Student Union 
Building discovered the radio 
station's door ajar at about 8:00 
a.m., September 2, and notified 
Campus Security. Officer James 
"Smitty" Smith answered the 
janitors' calls and discovered the 
station to be a mess. Officer 
Smith delayed filing a report on 
the incident until personnel from 
K.S.C.L. could inspect the 
damage. At 1:30 p.m., K.S.C.L. 
program director, Frank Serio, 
found the station's door once 
again ajar, and discovered the 
theft and vandalism. Shortly 

thereafter members of the 
Shreveport Police Department 
were called into the in- 

The major damage to K.S.C.L. 
came in the form of the theft of a 
professional cassette .-tape 
player, valued at $600, and $700 
worth of albums. The albums 
stolen included all of the station's 
top 35 albums and 65 of 75 
recently received albums. Ac- 
cording to Program Director 
Serio, the theft of the albums was 
"systematic," and the thief knew 
exactly what to steal to most 
interfere with the station's 
operation. The thief, in a further 
act of "mindless violence," 
proceeded to scatter 75 percent of 
K.S.C.L. 's record collection, until 
the control room was "knee deep 
in records." 

Police are still investigating 
the crime and at this writing 
have not reached a solution. 

Centenary students (1. to r.) Lee Morgan, Talbot Hopkins, and Todd Moore are seen here at St. John's 
College at Oxford, where they studied British literature as part of the Oxford Summer Studies Program. 

Sandy Beaches for Pooped Profs? 

By Robert Ed Taylor 
Chaplain of the College 

The official word came in the 
middle of November through the 
Dean's office from the Personnel 
and Economic Policy Committee 
— I had been granted a 
"sabbatical" for the spring 
semester of 1983! My joy was 
exceeded only by the enigmatic 
and halting reactions of some 
students. As I shared with them 
this good news, questions arose, 
"Where will you go — how long 
will you be gone?"; comments 
were made, "Say, that's nice to 
have a whole semester's 
vacation!" Others raised visions 
of their professor lolling on the 
beach or exploring some exotic 
city of the east. Nice try, but it 
was only a projection of what 
some students might do if they 
had a sabbatical ! 

Some were kind enough to say, 
"Be sure to come back." Others 
hesitantly asked, "Will you be 
back in the fall...?" as if a 
sabbatical might be a disguised 
way of ejecting a prof from the 
academic fold. 

Dr. Robert Ed Taylor, Chaplain of 
Centenary College 

What is a sabbatical? As 
practiced among many 

universities and colleges, a 
sabbatical is the release of a 
teacher from regular duties for 
one or two semesters so that- 
he/she might "pursue special 
studies, enhance his/her 
instructional skills, or enlarge 
professional expertise and 
general cultural development." 
Ordinarily, a sabbatical program 
provides that the professor is paid 
his or her regular salary during 
this period of absence from usual 

The modern practice of 
sabbatical reaches back to 
ancient Semitic cultures as 
evidenced in the Old Testament. 
Hebrew law provided that every 
seven years the fields should lie 
fallow, or be removed from 
cultivation for that year. It was a 
time of cessation from regular use 
or responsibility. 

Through the special efforts of 
President Webb and Dean Gwin 
Centenary inaugurated a 
sabbatical program for the 
faculty in 1979. Dr. Rosemary 
Seidler of the Chemistry 
Department, Dr. Earle Labor of 
the English Department, and Dr. 
Alton Hancock of the History 
Department have participated in 
this program since its inception. 
Dr. Stan Taylor of the Chemistry 
Department and Professor 
William Teague of the Music 
Department will be on sabbatical 
in the 1983-84 school year. 
1. Faculty Handbook, Centenary 
College, pg. 51 

My own sabbatical was not 
spent in far away places with 
strange sounding names (unless 

Dallas and Austin turn you on!) 
but in nearby cities and 
universities, including Shreve- 
port. My request for a sab- 
batical emanated from a 
desire to spend additional study in 
academic interests and pursuits. 
My work as chaplain, and other 
administrative tasks, usually 
demand a significant amount of 
time away from "the books". 
Concentration on academics 
would be helpful personally and 
would reflect positively in the 

My time was divided between 
writing, research and general 
studies. I spent several weeks 
preparing three articles for 
publication, each of these dealing 
with biblical interpretation. A rich 
experience was participation in a 
seminar on the doctrine of Christ 
at Austin Presbyterian Seminary. 
Most rewarding was the time 
spent at Perkins School of 
Theology, Southern Methodist 
University doing research in 
biblical hermeneutics. While 
there I was a Willson lecturer in 
the University Worship program. 
Attendance at the American 

Academy of Religion's regional 
meeting in April provided a 
number of provocative lectures. 

One goal, delayed several years 
by lack of time was the 
development of visual aids for Old 
and New Testament survey 
courses. That project was 
initiated and will be used in the 
fall courses. General reading, 
particularly in modern biography, 
rounded out my intellectual 
pursuits. Alas, no sandy beaches 
or mystifying cities ! 

Usually when a faculty member 
is on sabbatical other members of 
the Department shoulder part of 
his work. I am most grateful to 
several staff members, 

particularly Drs. Pomeroy and 
Emler, for their assumption of 
additional duties such as 

It is good to be back in a full- 
time relationship at the College, 
refreshed and anticipating a 
splendid year with student and 
faculty colleagues. I am grateful 
to those who make possible the ' 
sabbatical program.

Rose Garden 

"Tthink it's beautiful!" 

Well folks, it's finished, and I 
think it's beautiful. 

If you're not sure what I refer 
to, I speak of the new Hodges Rose 
Garden. And for those of you who 
are not familiar with the 
opposition this little garden met, 
let me fill you in. 

The garden was built and 
stocked thanks to money from a 
quarter million dollar donation by 
Bill and Sarah James. The 
project, part of Centenary's 
Master Plan for development, was 
begun in February of last 
semester and the finishing 
touches were added just this 

The Hodges Rose Garden is 
planted with eighteen varieties of 

flowers and shrubs, scheduled to 
bloom at least one flower the 
entire year through, and features 
the "Centenary Rose," a flower 
bred especially for us in 

And in addition to the 
construction of the garden, money 
was set aside in a trust for its 
perpetual care. 

So what opposition could this 
little garden have brought about? 

Well, it was a popular opinion 
during construction that the 
monies designated for the garden 
could have been better spent 
elsewhere on campus. Building 
maintenance, technical equip- 
ment, and library books were a 
few alternatives suggested. 

Work on the Hodges Rose Garden is now completed. Dedication 
ceremonies will be October 6. (photograph by Jim Ogden)

True, these were all causes 
worthy of attention, but there was 
one stipulation in the grant of the 
large sum of money. The money 
was to be used for construction, 
cultivation, and care of a rose 
garden, and a rose garden alone. 
No garden, no $250,000.

have been instrumental in

Welcome to Wonderland! This 
is a place where I examine life in 
general and reduce it to an 
amusing series of vignettes. This 
week, in keeping with the Back to 
School theme of this issue of The 
Conglomerate, I will give you 
some helpful hints on meeting new 
people and avoiding or rectifying 
the problems usually associated 
with this trying situation. 

The first problem that is usually 
encountered is MAKING 
CONVERSATION. Oh sure, you 
can take the easy way out and 
resort to such questions as: 
"Where are you from?", "What's 
your major?", and "What's your 
name?" However, these are 
cliche' and rarely lead to lasting 

I prefer sure-fire questions such 
as: "Do you want to see my 
salamander farm?", and "Wasn't 
your father the one who was 
recently convicted of bribing a 
public official?" I guarantee both 
of the questions will drag a 
response from even the most 
reluctant freshman. 

The next difficulty and often thl I 
most embarassing is 

you're like me, names vanisf f 
from your mind as quickly 
historical dates. Therefore, I ha\ 
developed a system to avoil 
sticky social situations. Ml 
system is this: Pick one f email

New Caf policies 
take effect 

By Lea Burelbach 
Editor of The Conglomerate 

If you've entered the Caf yet, 
you may have noticed the 
prominent sign proclaiming a $25 
fine for removal of cafeteria ware 
and food items. This is just the 
beginning of a reestablishment of 
caf policies/Besides the rule 
against "borrowing" any glasses, 
silverware, and such, there will 
also be a rule against any takeout 
meals. This includes cokes, 
coffee, water, and even ice cream 
cones. No outside glasses or cups 
will be allowed in the caf, either. If 
you try to foolishly get away with 
any of these rules, be forewarned: 
You may meet up with Mattie, the 
fierce (but likable) caf moniter, 
who has been hired to ensure the 
policies will be carried out Other 
policies which will be in effect are 
simply old policies that have been 
reinstated. For instance, the doors 
will be locked between meals and 
no one will be allowed in before or 
after hours. Also, the kitchen will 
be off limits. For faculty and staff 
"brown baggers", drinks and a 
prepared salad can be purchased 
for lunch. The drinks will be 25 
cents per glass and prepared 
salads can be purchased for $1. 
Usually on Tuesday evenings, a 
special meal will be served. 
These specialties may be a 

"Mexican Fiesta", an 

"Internationl Meal", or a "Make 
Your Own Banana Split", to name 
a few. Plans for picnics have been 
made during the fall and spring, 
too. For those times when you 
don't feel your best and are unable 
to make it to the meal, sick trays 
may be obtained by contacting 
your RD or RA for a sick tray 
request, filling it out, and getting a 
friend to bring the request to the 

The reason we have all these 
wonderful new rules to follow is 
very basic to all of us: We need 
better food. In order to obtain the 

money to get better food, the caf

year to determine if there is 
measurable difference in th

been drunk. So even if this is a 
imposition, try to grin and bear i

Laura Echols has always known 
she would work in the Church. 

And now, as a rising junior at 
Centenary College, she is living up 
to the lifelong ambition. 

Her full-time summer position 
as Youth Director at Summer 
Grove United Methodist Church 
came as a result of her internship 
there as a Church Careers student 
at Centenary. 

"My favorite thing about the job 
is being with the youth," the 
pretty blonde said. "They see me 
as an adult, but also as a friend — 
they have learned that people who 
are older can also be their friend. 
They really need someone besides 
their parents to talk to. I try to get 
across to them that they're special 
people and that they have 
something to give." 

As Youth Director, Laura is in 
charge of the Sunday night 
program, involving dinner, a 
program, recreation, and a 
worship service; excursions 
including a trip to Orlando, Fla.; 
volunteer work with a Shreveport 

Hospitality House; prayer 
breakfasts, small group meetings 
with the senior highs, and a once-a- 
week program for elementary- 
aged youth called Worlds of Fun. 

"You really have to know who 
you are to work with these kids." 
Laura said. "You have to know 
how you feel about things. The 
Church Careers Program at 
Centenary has really helped me 
with this. It makes us spend time 
looking at ourselves, thinking 
about our values." 

Laura's placement at Summer 
Grove is very different from her 
freshman internship at Love 
Chapel in Haughton. "Doug Cain 
was the pastor there, and he 
suggested that I could get a 
different perspective on the 
Church if I just observed their 
work, instead of being a part of it. 
He was right. It was really good 

But Laura couldn't stay away 
from the action too long. By April 
of her freshman year, she was at 
work for Dr. John Braden at 

Summer Grove Methodist. 

"Laura demonstrates maturity 
and dedication far beyond her 
years and has a fine Christian 
spirit," said Dr. Braden. "It is fair 
to say that excellence marks all 
the work she does. " 

Laura is one of over 60 
Centenary students enrolled in the 
Centenary School of Church 
Careers. "It takes a lot of 
committment of time and energy. 
You have to be dedicated to be in 
this program," the Shreveporter 
said with a smile. In addition to all 
the demands of her internships, 
she is majoring in two academic 
areas — Christian Education and 
Elementary Education. 

Next year she'll be putting that 
expertise to work when she helps 
with Summer Grove's children's 
ministries. Says Dr. Braden, "We 
are fortunate to be a part of 
Laura's professional formation 
and development and to benefit 
from her talent. We love her

Centenary is very fortunate in 
that we have never experienced a

We've come close a few times, but 
to date we have been very lucky. 
If we want to maintain that

Choir visits China 

by Carole Powell 
Features Editor 

•'So how was China?" 

As one of the 83 traveling to the 
Orient with the Centenary 
College Choir this past summer, 
this question has been put to me 
no less than 100 times in the last 
two months. I never mind being 
asked, but I do find it nearly 
impossible to respond with a pat, 
one-sentence answer. "It was 
fun" sounds too much like a week 
on the beach. "It was in- 
teresting" has the ring of a 
museum tour. So, anyone who 
poses the question and is ob- 
viously politely passing the time 
of day receives a perplexed look, 
a shrug of the shoulders, and "It 
was incredible." However, for 
those who ask "How was China? " 
and really want to know how 
China was, my answer is this: 

5 experienced my first and only 
moment of fear in China when 
our plane began its descent for 
landing in Beijing (formerly 
Peking). Below us the fields lay 
in neat squares around the 
commune buildings. The thought 
"I'm entering a Communist 
country" and a host of associated 
words red threat. Cold War, 
Communist plot, invasion— 
drilled into me since birth raced 
through my mind. I wondered if 
we would be welcome. 

An) fear for our safety or 
anxiety concerning our welcome 
in China proved to be groundless, 
ft seems that Chine's population 
is one billion warm, generous, 
smiling people. Everywhere we 
went, the Chinese appeared as 
curious about and eager to learn 

Smiling faces and inquisitive looks greeted the choir during their visit to China. 

about us as we were them. When 
verbal communication was 
impossible due to the language 
barrier, as it was in most in- 
stances, the citizens of our host 
country employed waves, bows, 
and- always— big smiles to 
express their sentiments toward 

I received a demonstration of 
the Chinese people's kindness 
and friendliness one afternoon in 
Sian. Needing a battery for my 
camera. I took advantage of an 
hour of free-time before dinner to 
explore the area around the hotel 
and to search for a camera shop. 

Members of the Centenary College Choir are seen here during their visit 
to the Great Wall of China. 

In each of the four Chinese cities 
we visited, the choir drew crowds 
of Orientals anxious to observe 
Occidentals; however, Sian 
evidently saw even fewer 
Westerners than the other three 
cities, and a tall, fair-skinned 
red-headed female found herself 
surrounded every time she 
stopped by groups of twenty or 
more Chinese eager to Iook upon 
such a strange visage and to listen 
to such strange sounds (those of 
English). After discovering 
through a display of my camera 
and its battery that the first shop 
I ventured into did not sell the 
necesary item, I made my way 
through the crowd of onlookers 
and stood on the sidewalk looking 
for another shop. As I was about 
to cross the street, a man in his 
mid-thirties who had witnessed 
my demonstration in the shop 
approached me at the same time 
that a girl of twenty or so pulled 
up next to me on her bicycle. The 
two conversed a moment, and 
then the girl smiled at me and 
said in rather good English, 
"We'll help you find a battery." 
During the late afternoon it had 
begun to drizzle rain. While most 
people were making their way 
home after the day's work, these 
two led me from shop to shop. If a 
likely-looking shop had already 
closed, the man and girl would 
knock on a side door and the 
three of us would go behind the 
shop to the living quarters where 

they would explain what we were 
searching for. 

After half an hour, I explained 
that I was late for dinner and 
thanked them both for their help. 
The girl walked me back to the 
hotel, all the while practicing for 
an upcoming American history 
exam. "George Washington was 
your first president, yes? And 
Martin Luther King was a very 
great man? Yes, and there are 
the Appalachian Mountains in the 
United States, yes?" The ex- 
perience was such a warm one 
that I didn't care about not 
having found a battery. 

Throughout China, members of 
our group were approached by 
language students, such as the 
girl in Sian, desirous of testing 
their English. While descending 
the Great Wall, I met a teacher 
from one of the southern cantons 
who had come to Beijing to study 
more English. He explained that 
both language teachers and 
language learning materials are 
in short supply in China. He was 
disappointed because he had 
begun to learn French (a popular 
foreign language after English), 
but could not continue his studies 
because he no longer had a 
teacher. So desperate for English 
teachers are the Chinese that no 
more is required of a native 
speaker of English who wishes to 
teach than a high school diploma. 
The favorite English teacher of 
one of our guides had been a store 

clerk in Texas before teaching in 

One of everyone's favorite 
experiences while in China was 
the visit to a kindergarten in 
Shanghai. The children, aged 
four to six, were doing arts and 
crafts in some rooms, dancing (in 
which we were invited to par- 
ticipate) in others, and playing 
on playground equipment and in 
a sandbox outside. After a tour, 
we were treated to a program in 
which the students sang, danced, 
recited comedy dialogue, and 
played musical instruments. 
Everyone was awed by their 
skill, talent, and memory. 

I was surprised to find that, 
almost without exception, the 
kindergarteners were quite 
outgoing and uninhibited in their 
interaction with foreign adults. 
Perhaps this is due to the fact 
that most Chinese children are 
now growing up as only children. 
In order to slow the rate of the 
country's population growth, the 
government is encouraging 
marrying late and having only 
one child. Two children are 
permitted, but one" is much 
preferred. Being an only child 
and thus receiving all the at- 
tention of both parents and much 
of that of the grandparents may 
have such positive effects as 
those witnessed at the pre-school. 
However, one guide expressed 
the fear that these circumstances 
might lead to spoiled children. 
The relationship between 
Chinese parent and child made a 
deep impression on me. Whether 
riding a child in the bicycle 
basket, holding his hand walking 
down a crowded sidewalk, or 
sitting with him on a street 
corner idly watching people 
Come and go, the parent treated 
the child with apparently infinite 
patience and caring. It was 
especially refreshing to see that

attention and tenderness usually 
given only by mothers in our 
culture. Pride in their progeny 
was obvious, especially when an 
American asked permission to 
take a picture. The parent would 
become very enthusiastic, 
pushing the child in front of him 
and encouraging him to wave and 
smile. These people would not 
spank their children in Safeway.

Mini-Movie Review 

"Mr. Mom" 

(2V2-3 stars) 
The movie, "Mr. Mom," is a 
comedy about an upper middle 
class couple, played by Michael 
Keaton and Terri Garr, whc 
suffer through a hilarious role 
reversal. Keaton plays a Detroit 
auto engineer, Jack Butler, who 
is laid off by his company and 
must assume the role of mother 
and housewife, while his wife 
Caroline, played by Miss Garr, 
enters the business world to 
support the family. 
The film's success is due to its 

ability to portray the initial 
failures of Jack Butler as a 
homemaker, and his ultimate 
success in a manner that varies 
from subtle humor to slapstick 
comedy. "Mr. Mom" is currently 
playing at Quail Creek Cinema. 


Shreveport has a new eating 
establishment just waiting for 
hungry Centenary students. It is 
Shoney's on Youree Drive, home 
of the famous Big Boy Burger! 
Not only do they offer burgers, 
but also a wide variety of 
seafoods, steaks, and chicken 
dishes. Of course, included in 
most entrees, the salad bar is a 
meal in itself that should not be 
missed during your meal. 

The main attraction of this 
family restaurant is the high 
quality of the products used. This 
includes the soup and salad bar 
which is freshly stocked at all 
times with everyone's favorite 
fruits and vegetables. Shoney's 
has something for everyone 
whether it be burgers or steaks, 
all of which are offered at sur- 
prisingly reasonable prices, 
making it an ideal outing for us 
penny-pinching college students. 

Shoney's opens daily at 6:00 
A.M. with it's undescribable, all 
you can eat, breakfast buffet. 
This is the ideal spot for those 
2/3rd's meal ticket holders who 
have an occasional craving for 

This is also a great place for 
those casual study breaks that 
include that familiar rumble in 
the tummy! Shoney's offers a 
scrumptous dessert menu that 
includes strawberry pie and 
pineapple cheesecake. 

The establishment is open from 
6:00 A.M. until midnight Sunday 
through Thursday, and from 6:00 
A.M. until 2:00 A.M. Fridays and

Ladies' Scholarships 

The start of the 1983-84 school 
year has brought changes to 
Centenary, and, more 

specifically, to the financial aid 

One such change concerns 
scholarships for the Ladies 
basketball team. 

The Centenary Ladies began 
only in the 1981-82 school year. 
Along with its institution, six full 
athletic scholarships were 
designated for outstanding team 
members, based upon their 
playing ability. These full 
scholarships included tuition, 
fees, and room and board, and 
given to girls selected by the 
athletic department. 

The department also has the 
prerogative to keep the 
scholarships intact or to divide 
them into partial scholarships 
covering more players. 

In the case of a partial, 
scholarship from the athletic 
department, eligible players 
could round out their tuition costs 
by taking additional partial 
academic scholarships and 

money from the General 
Scholarship Fund. 

However, in the team's second 
year, the financing of the General 
Scholarship Fund was no longer 
available and had to be replaced 
by monies from somewhere else. 
The Financial Aid budget simply 
hadn't the resources to add to the 
basketball scholarships. 

This additional funding was 
raised by the athletic department 
and put into a special account 
especially for financing Ladies' 
basketball scholarships. 

This year's financial aid to the 
Centenary Ladies is even more 
restrictive than before. Although 
the original six full scholarships 
are still awarded (in whole or in 
part, depending on the discretion 
of the coaches), and eligible 
members may also receive 
partial academic scholarships, 
the additional funding (taken in 
the past from General 
Scholarship funds, and outside 
fund raising) will no longer be 

Evans named soccer coach 

Glenn Evans, superintendent 
of Athletics for Shreveport Parks 
and Recreation (SPAR), is the 
new Centenary College soccer 

Evans received his B.S. in 
education in 1969 from Centenary 
and begins his second ap- 
pointment as head soccer coach. 
He coached the team as a club 
sport from 1974-78 and guided the 
team to a 20-8 record before 
leaving for SPAR, a position he 
will continue to hold. 

Evans takes over for Enos 
Russell who left for Arlington, 
Tx., where he will assume the 

duties of Head Master at The 
Oakridge School. 

"Coach Russell did an ex- 
cellent job with the soccer 
program, and my main concern 
is to try and keep the program 
where it is now," Evans said 
about his appointment. 
"Basically we need two I 
right away: a good goal keeper 
and a good striker." 

The Centenary soccer team 
opens its season Friday, Sept. 9, 
in the John Brown University 
tournament in Siloam Springs, 
Ark. They will also face 
nationally ranked SMU in Dallas 
on October 14.

A search for excellence 


"We aspire to have one of the 
best small college programs in 
business in the United States by 
the year 1988." that is the thesis 
statement of "A Search for 
Excellence," Dean Barrie 
Richardson's plan for 
revitalizing the Centenary 
College School of Business. 

There are several goals con- 
tained within the mission 
statement of "A Search for 
Excellence." The plan's chief 
goal will be to upgrade the 
quality of the School of 
Business's undergraduate and 
graduate programs. Other goals 
include making Centenary 
graduates more sought after by 
employers and graduate schools, 
attracting the brightest high 
school students by creating a 
more challenging undergraduate 
business program, and to earn a 
reputation for the scholarly and 
professional competence of the 
business faculty. 

"A Search for Excellence" 
acknowledges the fact that good 
grades and success in the 
business world are not 
necessarily related. However, it 
also takes into account the fact 
that a college, such as Centenary, 
provides an excellent en- 
vironment for the development of 
future business leaders. 

To achieve the goals outlined, 
"A Search for Excellence" will 

Dr. Barrie Richardson, Dean of the School of Business, a leader 
striving for excellence. 

lead to numerous changes in 
business, economics, and ac- 
counting curriculums. The 
business department will be 
more rigorous and challenging, 
with students required to 
demonstrate high levels of 
proficiency in communication 
skills, quantitative analysis, 
economics, and core courses in 

management, finance, and 
marketing. Students in the 
business department will also 
have the opportunity to apply 
classroom concepts to the real 
world, through internships, 
unpaid staff assistantships in 
local businesses, and case studies 
of local businesses. 

Arrangements will also be made 

Danger, escaped images 


Consider the entertainment for 
your next party... How about 
something a little different? 
"Escaped Images" may be just 
what you need. Denise McGuffey 
and seven other Centenary 
students have organized a dance 
troupe for hire. 

The original five-member 
troupe first performed at La 
Bossier in early August and since 
then have danced at Cowboy's 
and are contracted to dance at 

the Red River Revel Oct. 8. Since 
their first engagement at La 
Bossier, Denise McGuffey, Mae 
Ann Owen, Amy Love, Cara 
Derrick and Lisa Chaisson have 
added two new dancers to the 
group. Robert Martin, a Cen- 
tenary student, and Ginger 
Folmer, a Centenary dance in- 
structor, will be with the group 
when they perform at the Revel. 
Despite their love for dance, 
the group's primary interest is 
financial. They are presently 

assembling a portfolio that they 
hope will help in finding in- 
terested clients. All the members 
>have been dancing most their 
lives. Denise owns a studio in 

"Escaped Images" performs a 
twenty minute Jazz and modern 
dance program that includes two 
solo routines in addition to their 
group numbers. For information 
concerning auditioning for or 
hiring the group, contact Lisa 
Chaisson or Denise McGuffey. 

for students to study for a 
semester in Washington, D.C., 
New York City, Dallas, Chicago 
or Atlanta. 

Centenary's economics and 
accounting major programs will 
also undergo changes as part of 
"A Search for Excellence." 
Economics will come into its own 
as a major program, which will 
be completed by only a small 
number of the students who begin 
it. Students studying accounting 
will, in the future, be required to 
earn a "B" or better average in 
introductory courses if they wish 
to pursue an accounting major. It 
is the goal of "A Search for 
Excellence," in regard to ac- 
counting, to have one of the 
highest pass completion rates on 
the C.P.A. exam in Louisiana. 

"A Search for Excellence" will 
lead to definite change in Cen- 
tenary's M.B.A. program. There 
are currently several models for 
the program under consideration 
by the faculty and ad- 
ministration. There is, however, 
the distinct possibility that in 
1988, Centenary will no longer 
have an M.B.A. program. Ac- 
cording to "A Search for Ex- 
cellence," if Centenary main- 
tains a graduate program in 
business, it will be distinctive, 
while also suited for Centenary's 

An idea, new to Centenary 
College, to come out of "A Search 
for Excellence" is the Centenary 
Management Scholar program. 

The program will involve a select 
group of individuals, identified at 
the end of their sophomore year, 
who have met high levels of 
performance. Students in the 
program will be involved in 
special seminars each semester 
and trips to financial and 
business centers. The program 
will also include honor 
scholarships given to program 
members and special assistance 
in seeking admission to the 
country's best M.B.A. programs. 
While the goals of "A Search 
for Excellence" are ambitious, 
they are, in the minds of the 
faculty and administration, 
obtainable. And in the words of 
"A Search for Excellence," "If 
we come close we will have one of 
the most outstanding programs 
in the country."

Knowledge is power 

To the student body 

I would like to call a certain 
inconsistency in the proceedings 
of the Honor Court to your at- 
tention. A cornerstone of the 
American judicial system has 
always been the right of the 
accused to confront the witnesses 
against him. The Honor Court, 
however, denies the accused, his 
or her right to face their accuser. 
This represents a direct con- 
tradiction of the Sixth Amend- 
ment to the United States Con- 

stitution, which states that the 
accused shall have the right to 
"be confronted with the wit- 
nesses against him." 

When we accept admission to 
Centenary College we, as 
students sign away many of our 
rights, but the right to justice 
should not be one of those lost. It 
is my opinion that the judicial 
discrepancy in the Honor Court 
makes justice impossible, and 
should be rectified immediately. 
Clay Robertson 

Dear Students, Administration, 
Faculty & Staff, 

I want to express my ap- 
preciation for all of the support 
you have given me over the past 
month and a half. You have 
helped make all of the activities I 
have planned a 100 percent 
success. When I first arrived at 
Centenary I was told that 
apathetic was the word to 
describe this campus. I have 
found the opposite to be true. 
These "apathetic" students and 
staff have gone out of their way to 
make my job run smoothly and 
make me feel welcome at Cen- 
tenary. I also want to thank you 
for making the Coffeehouse a big 

I am already beginning to 
make plans for the Spring 
semester and if you have any 

suggestions or ideas please come 
by and see me. Also if there was 
an activity that you didn't care 
for or thought we could improve 
on, feel free to express your 
opinion. I profit not only from the 
positive but the negative as well. 

We have several activities 
planned for the remainder of 
September. The dancercise 
classes will be every Wednesday 
and Thursday at 5:00 p.m. on the 
S.U.B. stage, Kathleen Aulds, 
with Aulds Florist, will talk about 
"Plant Survival" on the 27th, and 
I will be rescheduling the "Rape 
Prevention" course. 

Again I want to thank all of you 
for your support and making me 
feel part of the Centenary family.

As I sat in Brown Memorial 
Chapel last Thursday watching 
robe after robe, color after color 
pass down the aisle I felt a thrill 
and an awe take hold of me. It is 
the same euphoria that over- 
comes me each timne I see such a 
scholarly procession. 

Did you ever stop to think about 
the purpose of this college? 
Beneath the cameraderie, the 
parties, elections, radio stations, 
rose gardens, and cafeteria 
humor there is a school. 

The American Heritage Dic- 
tionary of the English Language 
defines a school as "an institution 
for instruction and learning." 
Not a particularly enlightening 
definition, to be sure. But the 
foundation of any school or 
scholarship is this learning, and 

basically, that is why we are all 

The desire for knowledge has 
been inherent in humans since 
time began. Some say this trait 
raises man above other animals 
into a unique category of his own. 
Nevertheless, this insatiable 
curiosity about his surroundings 
has driven man to discovery. And 
along the way he has experienced 
a euphoria unlike any other. 

What has happened to the joy of 
discovery? Many have captured 
the elation of learning, but I know 
that often times a "school" at- 
mosphere takes the fun. out of 

Imagine yourself a follower of 
Plato, listening to the philosophy 
of Socrates in the school in the 
grove, or hearing a comedy of 
Aristophanes. Or perhaps, the 
next time you confront a biology 

problem, picture yourself a 
classmate of Alexander and a 
pupil of Aristotle. Euclidean 
geometry is more intriguing 
when viewed from the eyes of an 
ancient Greek student. Granted, 
not all teachers or textbooks can 
transmit the joys of "In- 
troduction to Literature 201 A" in 
an eye-opening manner, but it is 
their duty to try. 

I guess what I'm getting at is 
that knowledge, in its newly 
discovered form, is exhilarating. 
We do not know all that the 
teachers of this college have to 
offer us and this knowledge can 
be just as "undiscovered" to us 
as it was to the ancient scholars, 
but not as frustrating to extract. 
So don't just do your homework- 
live it ! Learn it, not because it is 
assigned, but because it is there 
to be rediscovered by you. 


S.U.B. needs help 


Would all those who think the 
S.U.B. is perfect as it is please 
raise their hands? 

Personally, I think the S.U.B. 
(that's STUDENT Union 
Building, by the way) really 
needs some help. First of all, it 
could make a real difference if 
only those tacky walls were 
painted. The real problem is that 
the place is so incredibly drab, 
however. A Student Union 
Building ought to be a place 
where the students come to spend 
their leisure time. As it now 
stands, many students wouldn't 
be caught dead in there. If they 
actually do step in, it's only to 
buy a coke and get out as quickly 
as possible. There is an un- 

desirable stigma placed on 
anyone who spends an unusually 
long period of time in the S.U.B. I 
think a big part of that stigma 
comes from the fact that the 
S.U.B. itself is so much in need of 
repair. It's as if someone who 
could be happy in a place as 
miserable as the S.U.B. must be 
pretty miserable himself. At 
least, this seems to be the at- 
titude taken by some. 

It has been said that a person 
responds to his surroundings. If 
that's the case, I'd say people are 
responding pretty negatively to 
the Student Union Building if it is 
so unpopular. Perhaps if it could 
be updated— given a new coat (or 
two) of paint, given a new floor, 
more windows, better pool and 
ping-pong tables— just anything 
to brighten it up and make it 

more attractive. Maybe 
something really innovative 
could be done to it, like painting a 
mural or a series of Bloom 
County cartoons on one wall. We 
could even paint a reproduction 
of Michaelangelo's Cistene 
Chapel on the ceiling. If either of 
those seem a little far-fetched, 
maybe we could just paint or 
wallpaper up an assortment of 
pineapples and gents. At any 
rate, plenty could be done to 
improve the appearance of the 
S.U.B. If we could get some 
response in the form of letters, 
pickets, whatever, from you, the 
students, we might be able to 
make some changes. After all, 
isn't a Student Union Building 
supposed to be attractive to the 
people it was made for— the 

Words from Wonderland 


Reeb, men, reeb, women, reeb, 
music, REEB. This is a frater- 
nity party. I recently had the 
pleasure of attending not one, not 
two but four of these in- 
comparable events. Recovery is 
not yet in sight. 

I know some of you are saying, 
"What is a fraternity party?" 
"Where is a frat party?" The 
answers are: a gathering of 
fraternity brothers, because it's 
there, and ask the Coors delivery 
man, (Don't you think that poor 
overworked man should be made 
an honorary brother in all of the 
frats on campus?) Since some of 
you ask the above questions, I 
feel it is necessary to fill you in on 
the truth about frat parties. 

Frat parties are not what 
Animal House made them out to 
be. Yes, I was disappointed. I 
wanted to see Otis Day and the 
Knights perform "Shout." I 
wanted to leap from windows 
dressed in an Art Deco toga. 
Where were the motorcycle 
riders? Where was the Dean's 
wife? I assume all the "fun" 
people were in the Square with ali 
of the other "fun" people. 

No, there were no riotous 
parties. I saw men instead. Fine, 
upstanding citizens discussing 
the latest advances in laser 
technology. We drank the finest 
wines from the well-stocked wine 
cellars that all fraternities have. 
I was waltzed around dance 
floors until I was dizzy. At the end 
of the evening, a particularly 

nice young man from a fraternity 
I can't name, drank champagne 
from my thong. 

An evening fit for a princess, 
right? Wrong. If there was ever 
such a party at any of the frat 
houses in this town, it must have 
been fifty years ago. 

Parties at frat houses are, in 
reality, like parties anywhere 
else. Except for the amount of 
reeb consumed. And the fact that 
the music is so loud that your 
body vibrates and you only ap- 
pear to be dancing. And you must 
hold on to your cups because 
there are never enough to go 
around. And you will have fun no 
matter what the cost. Ouy lliw 
knird beer litnu ouy era kcis. 

Hey guys, will you invite me 
back sometime?

The Danish Connection 

This month marks the tenth 
anniversary of one of the most 
extraordinary academic 
relationships in the world— in 
fact, so far as I know, it is unique. 
I speak of the sister-institutional 
relationship between Centenary 
College and the University of 
Aarhus in Denmark. The 
relationship began ten years ago 
when I received a Fulbright 
grant to serve as visiting 
professor at Aarhus for the 1973- 
74 academic year; the sister- 
institutional program was for- 
malized two years later when the 
two schools inaugurated a 
regular exchange of professors 
and students. During the past 
seven years four Centenary 
faculty members— Fergal 
Gallagher, Lee Morgan, Hughes 
Cox, and Barry Nass— have 
exchanged living quarters and 
automobiles with teachers from 
the English Institute at the 
University of Aarhus; and five 
Centenary students— Mary Jane 
Peace, Royce Labor, Kim 
Hanson, Roberta Burns, and 
Ellen Brown — have spent a 
semester studying at Aarhus 
(while a like number of Danish 
students have come to Centenary 
as a part of the exchange 
program). This coming spring 
Professor David Jackson of the 
English Department will become 
the fifth Centenary faculty 
member to participate in the 
program when he exchanges with 
Professor Per Serritslev 
Petersen, former chairman of 
the English Institute at Aarhus. 

But many American univer- 
sities sponsor overseas study 
programs— so what makes ours 
so special? First, I believe it is 
the only one in which both 
teachers and students are in- 
volved in a regular exchange 
(and in which the teachers ac- 
tually exchange houses and 
cars). Second, and perhaps most 
important for our own students, it 
is the only foreign study program 
which requires no extra fees 
from the students. A Centenary 
student selected to participate in 
the program has only to pay his 
regular enrollment fees at 
Centenary in order to receive full 
college credit for the courses he 
takes at Aarhus. This is truly an 
extraordinary opportunity for 
those of our students who are 
interested in studying abroad. 

What is Denmark like? What is 
different about Danish univer- 
sities? These are questions I 
asked myself when I was first 
notified that I had been awarded 
a Fulbright lectureship. On the 
One hand I thought of Denmark 
as a dark, gray, cold coun- 
tryside—something like the 
miasmatic setting of HAMLET 
or one of the old depressing 
Ingmar Bergman black-and- 
white films. On the other hand, 
without fully comprehending the 
paradox, I thought of the modern 
Danes (unlike the melancholy 
Hamlet) as being smiling, free- 
swinging hedonists— something 
like the characters out of a class- 
B Swedish movie. And I really 
had no idea at all of what to ex- 


Centenary's exchange program with Aarhus allows faculty and students alike a unique learning 
experience, not to mention something seen all too infrequently at Centenary, snow. 

The University of Aarhus offers Centenary students many things — 
excellent classes, a beautiful campus, college credit, and a European 

pect in a Danish university. 
Regardless, my expectations and 
preconceptions could scarcely 
have been farther from the truth. 

What is Denmark like? Lovely! 
Charming! Vital! Full of color 
and warmth! Even during the 
cold wintertime — especially 
during the cold wintertime. 
There are warm colors 
everywhere (my favorite barber 
shop was decked out in red trim 
with scarlet-flocked wallpaper— 
and a gorgeous young woman 
with long blonde tresses trimmed 
my scanty topnot; and the 
department stores and shopping 
centers are decorated to rival a 
Disney fairyland). It is a 
photographer's delight. 

And the Danes? Also lovely and 
charming— and smiling— but not 
the fun-loving simpletons the 
tourist guidebooks would have 
you believe. They are a very 
serious and very private people- 
far quicker than most Americans 
to discuss intellectual matters, 
yet far less likely than we to 
discuss their personal feelings. 
Yet, once they have committed 
themselves to a friendship, their 
friendship is a deep and lasting 
one— as witnessed in the friend- 
ships that have developed over 
the years between Centenary and 

And what about the Danish 
universities and Danish 
students? The university classes 
are conducted on the British 
system— many seminars and few 
quizzes (mainly papers and a 
couple of lengthy comprehensive 
examinations over a four- or five- 
year period). And the students 
are generally older than ours, 
most of them in their early or 
mid-twenties, and most of them 
more familiar with con- 
temporary events and world 
affairs than our own students (a 

good many of them are, unlike 
ours, political activists). Even 
so, none of the Centenary 
students who have participated 
in the exchange program seem to 
have had any significant dif- 
ficulties in adjusting to the 
courses and their fellow Danish 
students at Aarhus. For one 
thing, most Danes— virtually all 
the young ones— speak English; 
and the courses in the English 
Institute are all taught in English 
rather than in Danish. For 
another, because several of the 
leading professors at Aarhus 
have been visitors at Centenary, 
they take a special interest in 
welcoming our students and 
teachers, and in making them 
feel at home. Moreover, we have 
found the Danes to be more like 
Americans in many ways than 
any other Europeans, including 
the British: they are generally a 
cheerful, congenial people who 
look at the world realistically yet 
optimistically and who enjoy the 
creature comforts yielded by a 
high-technology society, (in 
addition to exporting the world's 
finest milk products and bacon, 
they also manufacture excellent 
stereophonic equipment like 
Bang & Olafsen). There isn't an 
ounce of stuffiness or pretension 
in their character— nor is there 
any meanness or viciousness that 
we detected (incidentally, violent 
crime is extremely rare in 
Denmark, and we felt quite safe 
on the streets of Aarhus— a city 
about the same size as 
Shreveport— at any hour of the 
day or night). 

What about the Danish 
professors? First of all, not all of 
them are native Danes. One of 
the most brilliant teachers at 
Aarhus is Professor Donald 
Hannah, a Scotsman educated at 
Cambridge. Another, Karl-Heinz 

Westarp, is a native German and 
a former Jesuit priest. Fur- 
thermore, they are among the 
most learned among all 
European scholars. Donald 
Hannah has published widely, 
including a critical study of 
Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen), 
released by Random House in 
this country. Karl-Heinz Westarp 
edits an international theatre 
newsletter. Anna Rutherford, the 
department's exuberant 
Australian, is an international 
authority on the fast-growing 
field of Commonwealth 
literature. These are only a few 
examples. One American student 
I encountered during my year at 
Aarhus, told me that he had 
attended four American colleges 
and universities and that he 
ranked the Danish university 
above all of them. In short, the 
school is first-rate, as our own 
students have testified after their 
Aarhus adventure. 

A final fringe benefit of the 
program: Aarhus is located just 
north of Germany and within an 
easy train-ride of most of the 
major cities and tourist sites in 
Europe (and an easy plane-ride 
of England). One of the great 
pleasures of our own visit was the 
opportunity to visit such places 
as London, Munich, Salzburg — 
and, of course, wonderful 
Copenhagen and the Tivoli 

If you are interested in par 
ticipating in this unique 
program, see me for further

Mrs. Martin, at 869-5254.

Rumors of war 

By Jack Anderson 
and Joe Spear 

WASHINGTON — It is growing 
increasingly likely that Syria and 
Israel will engage in pitched 
battle this fall, according to U.S. 
intelligence analysts. The 
reason: Syrian President Hafez 
Assad is confident he can finally 
best his despised enemy. 

The intelligence reports say 
that Assad has bragged that he 
can now beat the Israelis in 
Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, where 
his troops are now faced off 
against Israel's forces. He would 
fight the battle with tanks, which 
he believes would give the Syrian 
army the edge on the ground. 

Assad has concluded that the 
Israelis fear Syria's missiles, and 
thus will not use their aircraft. 
He feels the Israelis will not fire 
at the missiles because they are 
operated by Russians inside the 
Syrian border. 

Our Israeli sources tell us, 
however, that if Assad really 
thinks they will keep their planes 

on the ground while Syrian tanks 
overrun their positions, he's in 
for a terrible jolt. The Israelis 
point out that they haven't been 
concerned in the past whether 
their fire kills Soviet advisers. 

Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy 
in Damascus has dispatched a 
dire message to Washington. It's 
in the form of a secret cable 
which says that Syria has been 
supplied by the Soviets with "an 
operational surface-to-surface 
'Frog' and 'Scud' missile 
capability which can reach 
targets inside Israel." 

These are missiles that can be 
armed with nuclear warheads. 
Indeed, they are the same 
weapons that are aimed at NATO 
targets from the Eastern bloc 
nations, according to a top-secret 
Pentagon report. 

State Department officials are 
not suggesting that these 
weapons will be used, nor that the 
Soviets will arm them with 
nuclear warheads. But the fact 
that the Syrians posses them, the 
diplomats felt, warranted an 
urgent message to Washington.

The Rose 

As many of us may remember, 
the Centenary College Rose 
Garden has been an issue for 
some time. With this in mind, I 
decided to ask a few students 
their opinions on the garden. I 
discovered this new addition to 
our campus has evoked many 
differing opinions, both good and 

One student whom I ap- 
proached responded that, "The 
rose garden has made our 
campus more appealing; a good 
change." Another said, "Since 
the money was donated and not 
taken out of our tuition, I think it 
was a good idea." One student, 
apparently thinking of his next 
date, said, "The lights are a little 
bright. It looks like a softball 
field, but it could be corrected by 
new bulbs for a more romantic 
atmosphere." An unimpressed 
student simply asked, "Where 
are the roses?" And finally, one 
of the more enlightened students 
on our campus replied, "The rose 
garden adds to the list of thingsHo 
be proud of." 

Unfortunately, the rose garden 
has received a lot of bad press. 
Now, however, it seems the 
general concensus is "thank 
you" for the rose garden. It 
really is something more for 
Centenary to be proud of.

Around Town 


It's finally here! Shreveport 
now has a fun, casual, exciting 
new tavern. This place is by far 
the finest of its kind. Located just 
past Southfield Shopping Center 
on Youree Drive; Toudan's 

When entering the restaurant 
and bar, behold! A surge of neon 
lights, brass, foilage and ex- 
cellent hospitality await every 
customer. Comfortable music of 
the 1950's plays into the ears of all 
types, young and old, of people 
from every walk of life. 

During our short wait for a 
table, we enjoyed a delicious, 
exilarating, fantastic liatkcoc.a 
Lost Memory. The Lost Memory 
is a delicious blend of MUR and 
fruit juices that can be compared 
to the famous Pat O'Brien's 

Shortly after our liatkcoc's we 
were shown to a cozy little table 
surrounded by smiling faces and 
lots of plants. We looked over the 
menu, and entertainment in it- 
self! Appetizers range from 
delicious fried Monteray Jack 
cheese to fried mushrooms and a 
pallet pleasing fried brocoli and 
cheese dish. 

Not only does Toudan's have 
terrific appetizers, they also 
have a superb salad bar in-

eluding fruits, mixed salads, and 
soup. This can be a wonderful 
meal in itself! 

For a main course, one could 
choose one of our favorites, the 
Hickory burger. This gourmet 
hamburger is about two inches 
thick and is topped with a 
scrumptous hickory sauce and 
chedder cheese. Along with this 
comes your choice of curly-Q 
fried potatoes, homemade 
potatoe salad, or a freshly baked 
potatoe. Another savory treat 
was the chicken fried steak 
fingers, also accompanied by 
curly-Q fries. 

Prices here are the most 
reasonable that we have seen in 
Shreveport for this type of 
establishment. They are ex- 
tremely reasonable if you simply 
want drinks and appetizers only. 
Don't forget your Drivers 
License and Centenary I. D. if 
you know what we mean! They

If anyone has a suggestion as to 
a new place or a favorite place 
that you would like us to try, 
please call 869-5564 or 869-5337 
and tell us. We would be very 
glad to have your help and will

Baseball season begins 

Runners open season 

Centenary's Gent baseball 
team started their 83 fall 
schedule off with two 
doubleheaders against East 
Texas Baptist and Northwestern 
State University. 

The doubleheader against East 
Texas Baptist came to a quick 
close when it was called in the 
third inning of the first game due 
to rain, with Centenary leading 5- 

Saturday's doubleheader with 
Northwestern State University 
began with little action in the 
first inning. However, in the 
second inning, the Gents picked 
up a 2-0 lead over the Demons 
when Wayne Rathbun led off with 
a single and stole second. John 
Mohon then hit a single to left 
field scoring Rathbun and

Harwell hit a double to right 
center field (also scoring his first

RBI) and scored Mohon before 
the second inning was retired. 

In the top of the third, the Gents 
threatened to score but fell short 
when Tony Tafoya, who led off 
with a single, was thrown out at 
home on Jim Goldman's triple. 
The Demons came back in the 
bottom of the third scoring two 
runs and tying the score 2-2. 

Goldman, in the sixth inning, 
reached first on an error and was 
moved to second on Rathbun's 
sacrifice bunt. With Goldman in 
scoring position Eddie Crone 
delivered an RBI single to center 
field bringing in their third run. 
The last Gent run came in the top 
of the seventh inning when 
Harwell led off with an infield 
single and was later scored when 
Northwestern's shortstop bob- 
bled Jim Kubik's ground ball. 
Going into the bottom of the 
seventh inning, the Gents held a 
4-2 lead over Northwestern 
University, but the Demons 
battled back to a 4-4 tie. 

The Demons prevailed over the 
Gents 1-0 in the second game of 
the doubleheader. 

Centenary's Cross Country 
Team opened their season

STAN problems corrected 

by Mickey Zemann 

For a brief time this summer, 
the Administration believed that 
Centenary would no longer be 
able to obtain or use STAN 
numbers (Student Telephone 
Account Numbers). This scare 
was due to news releases sent out 
from South Central Bell an- 
nouncing the many policy 
changes that occurred this 
summer, including the drastic 
increase in phone bills. However, 
this was only a scare, and as 
many of you know, STAN 
numbers are still being used and 
asked for when making long 
distance calls. 

No sooner had the STAN scare 
been cleared up when Centenary 
received another surprise. Due to 
an error which occurred at Bell 
Telephone Company, students 
making long distance phone calls 
have not been requested by an 
intercept operator to give their 
STAN number. As you may 
imagine, this came as quite a 
shock to those in Hamilton Hall, 
who thought that the College may 
have to foot the bill for all those 

long distance calls made during 
this period. However, a 
representative from Bell 
Telephone has assured the 
College that they have the means 
of tracking down each phone call 
and billing it to the proper per- 

Well, if it is possible for 
students to directly make long 
distance calls and for Bell 
Telephone to bill each call to the 
correct party - why can't Cen- 
tenary do away with STAN 

According to W. T. Tice, Bell 

representative, Centenary is and 
has been looking into updating its 
current telephone system. 
However, Tice also added, "If 
and when the change does take 
place is very much up in the air." 
The project is in its earliest 
stages of gathering information 
on the subject and nothing 
definite has been set. Tice is in 
charge of getting all of the 
possibilities of a new phone 
system together and then 
presenting the information to the 
Board. From that point on, the 
issue will be in the Board's 

Currently, Centenary is using 
theCentrex system, and has been 
since the early 1970's. This 
system is non-electronic, and 
therefore is becoming more and 
more obsolete as electronic 
devices become more popular. 
The Centrex system consists of 
dialing 9 to get off campus, then 
dialing the off campus location 
number. By dialing* the 9, the 
Centenary telephone is hooked up 
to the Bell Telephone Company's 
downtown office and a short 
period storage "buffer" is ac- 

tivated which stores, or 
remembers, everything dialed 
after the 9. When the dialing is 
completed, an intercept operator 
comes on the line and asks for the 
user's number. After the number 
has been given, the "buffer" is 
released and the call is made. 

Although this process usually 
takes only about one minute, it is 
possible that it could be totally 
eliminated by the use of an 
electronic switch. This electronic 
switch is one of the proposals 
made to change the phoning 
system at Centenary. With this 
switch, the intercept operator is 
eliminated and the caller will be 
automatically billed. 

But as for now, and probably 
for some time to come, Cen- 
tenary will stay with the Centrex 
system. And until the Public 
Service Commission decides 
whether or not to allow Bell 
Telephone Co. to phase out the 
STAN number system, Cen- 
tenary students will continue 
making long distance calls in the 
old familiar way. 

Homecoming: Who's responsible? 

by Mickey Zemann 

Traditionally, Homecoming 
has been an alumni sponsored 
and financed event. However, in 
the past few years the alumni 
office has requested more and 
more aid, both financially and 
organizationally, from the S.G.A. 
Last year, Chairperson of the 
S.G.A.'s Homecoming Com- 
mittee Alyce Boudreaux was 
asked by Chris Webb to once 
again grant aid from the S.G.A. 
for Homecoming. Boudreaux, 
fearing this aid would backfire in 
coming years, requested that 
Webb send a letter to the S.G.A. 
with the assurance that 
Homecoming would remain an 
alumni sponsored event. Webb 
responded through a letter to the 
S.G.A. signed by Wayne Curtis, 
then President of the Alumni 

Board of Directors. The letter 
stated that the Board affirmed 
their committment to the 
tradition of Homecoming and 
further stated that their intention 
"is and has been to participate to 
the fullest extent to all events 
surrounding the Homecoming 
queen and her court." He also 
gave Boudreaux his oral 
agreement that Homecoming 
would remain an alumni 

This year Webb, in apparent 
disregard for the previous year's 
agreement, contacted President 
Thurndotte Baughman and 
requested that the S.G.A. assume 
full responsibility for 
Homecoming and its ensuing 
events. Reasoning that, on 
Centenary's campus, 
Homecoming is no longer an 
Alumni event, Webb felt the 

students should assume 
responsibility for it. According to 
Sr. Senator Richard Wallace and 
Fr. Senator Susan Scott, the 
general feeling among students is 
to reject Webb's request. The 
S.G.A. will not participate in this 
year's Homecoming and the 
decision as the existance of 
Centenary's Homecoming will 
rest with the Alumni Office. 

S.G.A. Vice President 
Boudreaux spoke on behalf of the 
students, "The main concern of 
students is not the Homecoming 
event itself but the queen and her 
court." The S.G.A. has decided to 
incorporate a queen and her 
court in this year's Fall Ball. Of 
course, if Webb decides to set 
Homecoming following Fall Ball 
he could certainly present the 
^Fall Ball Court. If however, he 
decides to have Homecoming in 

the Spring he may elect a whole Homecoming or not, the students 

new queen and her court. The will have their queen and court, 

point is, regardless of whether Alas, the ultimate decision rests 

Webb decides to have in the hands of the Alumni Office.

September 18, 1983 
To the Editors, 

I am writing in response to an 
editorial that appeared in last 
week's Conglomerate titled 
"SUB Needs Help." I wish to 
clarify some misinformed 

The SUB is the Student Union 
Building— I have been in the SUB 
at all hours of the day and night 
and have always seen students 
there. Sometimes only a few are 
sitting and conversing; other 
times there are 100 people in the 
Coffeehouse watching a VCR 
movie. So deflates the thought 
that "students wouldn't be 
caught dead in there." 

It is true that "so much is in 
need of repair" and "plenty could 

be done to improve the ap- 
pearance of the SUB"; however, 
I would like to present a few 
overlooked facts. Several years 
ago a plan for total renovation of 
the SUB was proposed. The 
following year's Senate 
examined those plans and scaled 
them down to refurbishment of 
the present building. A ceiling 
was installed as was a new sound 
system with speakers scattered 
across the ceiling. This past 
year's SGA bought new couches, 
new tables and chairs, new 
carpets, and added plants for 
atmosphere. Specially fitted 
$1600 decorator Venetian blinds 
were also installed. 

Not only have there been these 
improvements, but the Cof- 

feehouse has made great strides 
in the last few years. The walls 
were papered, new curtains 
hung, and a giant screen TV and 
VCR machine were purchased. 
Even more recently, a new floor 
was laid. In addition to these 
changes, the menu was expanded 
to include everything from 
breakfast biscuits to yogurt and 
ice cream. 

Renovation of any building is a 
slow and expensive process. Past 
Senate's have worked on rec- 
tifying the situation; this year's 
Senate will continue to do the 
same. In the meantime, the SGA 
is open to any suggestions and 
ideas for betterment of the SUB.

Letter to the editor 

re: S.U.B. 
To the Editor: 

You know the S.U.B. is what 
you make it. And that's the whole 
point. Maybe if we all got 
together— and donated posters, 
time, and desire to fix it up— we 
could make the S.U.B. what we 

Every so often, a group of 
friends and myself go to the 
S.U.B. to get away from the 
books, and we all have a great 

time being together, bouncing a 
ping pong ball around. 

My suggestion: see if Kathy 
Heard will allow us to begin 
working on it. Maybe when they 
see that people are really in- 
terested — some money can be put 
into it. What do you think?

Senate Minutes 

(This is merely a report of , 
the Senate meeting of 20 Sep- 
tember and does not represent 
the official minutes of the Senate. ) 

The Tuesday, September 20, 

1983 meeting of the Student 
Senate was called t order by 
President Thurndotte Baughman 
at 11:06 a.m. Following the ap- 
proval of the previous meeting's 
minutes and the approval, with 
revisions, of the minutes from the 
S.G.A. Retreat, Treasurer Diane 
Fowler presented the 1983-84 
S.G.A. budget, as agreed upon at 

The Senate heard reports from 
its standing and ad hoc com- 
mittees during Tuesday's 
meeting. The chairpersons of its 
standing committees on Elec- 
tions, Entertainment, and 
Forums reported to the S.G.A. on 
the initial work done by their 
respective committees thus far 
this semester. Senator Kelly 
Crawford, chairperson of the 
Senate's ad hoc committee on 
graduation reported that her 
committee was examining the 
possible financial savings of 
making graduation one week 
earlier than the tentative May 27, 

1984 date. 

One of the hottest items on 
Tuesday's agenda involved the 
budget deficit of last year's 
Yoncopin. Editor of the 1982-83 
Yoncopin, Todd Moore, and 
yearbook advisor, Janie 
Flournoy, were questioned by the 

Senate as to the origin of the 
deficit. Moore stated that the 
deficit was caused by: 1) low ad 
sales, and 2) costs incurred due 
to proofsheet corrections and 
deadlines missed. During 
questioning Moore pointed the 
finger of blame at the yearbook's 
business manager and ad staff 
for causing the deficit through 
their poor performance. 

Under "Old Business," the 
Senate discussed the various 
shortcomings in the new Caf 
policy and heard the opinions of 
several students present at the 
meeting concerning the matter. 
After much discussion, S.G.A. 
Representative to the Caf 
Committee, Senator Matt 
Robinson, was asked to chair an 
ad hoc committee to look into 
ways of modifying the new Caf 
policy to the benefit of the 
students, while still saving 

Under "New Business," the 
Senate approved the ap- 
pointment of Melanie Sloan to 
restore the plants in the S.U.B. to 
good health. The senior male and 
female positions on the Judicial 
Board are currently vacant and 
the Senate approved a motion to 
seek qualified seniors to fill the 
posts. The Senate also appointed 
Laurie Simmons to the female 
position on the Intercollegiate 
Athletics Committee. 

The Senate adjourned at 12:11 

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

This has been an exciting week 
for me. I have made a few 
discoveries which you may find 
to be interesting. What 
discoveries have I made? Well, 
sit back, have a cigar and some 
of this Chivas which I purchased 
just for you and you and you 

After no sleuthing whatsoever, 
I found out that the S.U.B. is only 
fit for miserable people. Yes, it is 
true. And I can prove it. How? I 
frequent the S.U.B. and, as you 
all know, I am a miserable 
person. I only go there to be with 
my own kind. We hang around, 
play video games, watch MTV, 
and commisserate. Every now 

and then, one of us commits 
suicide just to keep the party 
going. Of course, this cuts down 
on membership in S.U.B.- 
S.T.A.N.D.A.R.D., the S.U.B. 
club, So, if you want to drop by... 

I also did some research 
concerning the S.U.B.-and- 
misery and I discovered this next 
item: while the S.U.B. was being 
built, a worker mysteriously 
.died. It is rumored that he died of 
boredom. And the building was 
not yet finished. Scary, huh? 
Sometimes, if you listen very 
closely, you can still hear him 
dragging his bucket of mortar 
around in the attic. 

The last thing that was 
revealed to me is horrifying. So 

horrifying that only Stephen King 
would believe it. There are bats 
in the attic. Yes, bats. Those 
furry, winged creatures which 
turn into vampires when 
provoked. Now that this horrible 
fact is known, someone is bound 
to remember some student who 
disappeared back in 1975, or a 
maintenance man who never 
came back from a routine check. 
But never fear. These are har- 
mless fruit bats. They are all 
interior decorators and... 

Actually, the only things to 
worry about are minor. Such as, 
if an undue amount of meat 
suddenly appears on the caf 
menu, or if someone has a dog 
named Cujo.

Among the subjects repainted 
by Curtis this summer were da

Summer Fun at MLP 

Activity at Centenary may 
move to a slower pace after May 
for some people, but certainly not 
for those involved with Marjorie 
Lyons Playhouse. 

The Playhouse was kept full 
and busy with two productions 
this summer, "Annie" and "The 

"Annie" opened on June 23. 
Directed by Robert Buseick, the 
production featured a cast of 
thirty-three performers, with 
Jennifer McJunkins as ANNIE, 
Bill Norton as DADDY WAR- 
BUCKS, and Anne Germillion as 
HANNIGAN and his girlfriend 
LILY were played by Patric 
McWilliams and Christy 
Bickham and David Hook played 
F.D.R., with Gale Odum playing 
the ever efficient secretary, 
Sklar as the butler, DRAKE. 

The orphans were Chelsea 
Werner, Rachel Richardson, 
Claire Woodall, Meg McJunkins, 
Leann Rogers and Mitzie Shields. 
Seva May led the large chorus in 

creating many different and 
varied roles from Hooverville- 
ites to New Yorkers and servants 
in Warbuck's Mansion. The 
chorus included Amy Alderman, 
Jenifer Revere, Chris Baldwin, 
Woody Plaissance, David Eason, 
Len Smith, Larry Nickles, Jason 
Revere, Michael Donahue, 
Barbara McJunkins, Dyanna 
Kristy, Harriet Lewis, Mitzi 
Bryson, Suzanne Matheny, Kathy 
Turner, Laura Ellis, Gayle 
Davis, Cara Derrick, and Amy 
Love. Cast as SANDY was Big 
Mac Lewis. 

"Annie" was a great success 
for the Playhouse and per- 
formers. Along with receiving 
excellent reviews in various local 
papers, "Annie" was a "sell-out" 
every performance. 

Leaving little time for rest and 
relaxation, "The Heiress" 
opened for a seven performance 
run at the Playhouse on July 28. 
Director Robert Buseick selected 
a cast of this area's finest actors 
for "The Heiress." 

Patric McWilliams played the 

handsome, fortune-hunting hero, 
Morris Townsend. And again, as 
in his performance in "Annie," 
he did an excellent job. 

Anne Germillion created the 
role of the shy, frightened, and 
dominated in this the stage 
version of Henry James' 
"Washington Square." Like 
McWilliams, Gremillion also 
performed in this past summer's 
first play, "Annie." 

The other main role was played 
by Jim Montgomery, who acted 
as Dr. Austin Sloper. 

Supporting the trio of 
Gremillion, McWilliams, and 
Montgomery were more of 
Shreveport and this area's finest 
actors. With performances by 
memory Lee Streun, Julia Jof- 
frein, Cynthia Hawkins, John 
Willcox, Kerri Rivers and Susan 

So, while you were out having 
"fun in the sun" Buseick and his 
casts of "Annie" and "The 
Heiress" were having fun... in the 

The Playhouse 

The modern building on the 
corner of Woodlawn and 
Wilkinson is uncluttered, sleek. 
Neat beds of rose bushes color 
the boulevard from the street to 
the lacy grillwork gates opening 
onto a shaded interior patio. The 
slow splashing of a new fountain 
is peaceful. 

The building is the Marjorie 
Lyons Playhouse. On the outside 
it is quiet and uncluttered; on the 
inside, it is anything but that. 

"This has been the craziest, 
most incredible year," beamed 
theatre director Bob Buseick, 
seated at his desk piled high with 
scripts and drawings, coffee 
mugs, books, and videotape 
equipment everywhere. In his 
15th year with the theatre 
department, Buseick is much like 
his building — good looking on 
the outside and full of energy and 
creativity on the inside. 

"It's like we were caught in the 
eye of a hurricane and suddenly 
we asked ourselves how we got it 
all done. I guess by not giving 

The year was incredible. 

It began in the fall on the MLP 
stage with "My Sister in This 
House" and ended nine months 
later on Washington, D.C.'s 
Kennedy Center Stage with the 
now award-winning production of 
"My Sister." In between were 21 
performances of "Trixie True, 
Teen Detective," "come back to 

the five and dime, jimmy dean, 
jimmy dean," and "Whose Life 
Is It Anyway?" ; a two-and-a-half 
week, 14-play trip to New York 
during the January Interim; 
competitions and benefit per- 
formances of "My Sister"; 
workshops at the Red Rivei 
Revel Arts Festival and in 
schools; volunteer choreography 
and directing. This is in addition 
to the 14-plus courses taught each 
semester in acting, theatre- 
history, directing, set design 
costume, dance, public speaking 
and debate. 

Even with such a monumenta; 
schedule, Bob and his "harem" 
keep things running smoothly. 
The gals are Ginger Darnell 
Folmer, '64, choreographer and 
dance instructor; Lee Ellen 
Holloway, '72, the technical 
director who picked up in March 
where a former staff member left 
off; Isobel Rosenbloom and Anne 
Gremillion, '74, voice in- 
structors; Rebecca Hefter, who 
will teach speech in the fall; and 
Angie McWilliams, secretary, 
seamstress, coffee-maker, mom. 

It is Angie's son, Patric, a '78 
graduate of Centenary, who 
takes time from his busy career 
in New York to do costumes 
designs and periodic directing for 
the Playhouse productions. 

There are other alumni like 
Patric, who keep in touch with 
Bob and his department. Jim 

Montgomery, '68, editorial page 
editor of The (Shreveport) 
Times, is very active in Cen- 
tenary theatre, including his 
going along to the Kennedy 
Center for the American College 
Theatre Festival. 

Rick Hawkins, '73, winner of an 
Emmy, organized a theatre 
reunion at Centenary last year. 
Mary Bozeman, '52, a 
professional actress in New York 
brought her show to the MLP 
stage during Alumni Weekend in 
1981. Jim Journey, '68, editor of 
Artbeat in Shreveport, writes 
regularly about MLP produc- 
tions. And the list could go on and 

"This is incredible, too," Bob 
, said, "because I tell my majors 
not to major in theatre. If there is 
anything else they can major in, I 
suggest they do that. But if they 
are willing to really work, be 
dedicated and committed and be 
able to accept rejection and 
disappointments, then I tell them 
to go for it!" 

Bob may be taking his own 
advice as he launches into a new 
project himself. 

"The time is perfect for a 
professional repertory theatre 
company, and it would definitely 
be advantageous for Centenary, 
as well as for the community," he 
said. "I'd like to see 8 to 10 
professionals who would use this 
facility in the fall to put together

and Anne Gremillion "the Heiress" in this summer's production of 
"The Heiress."

several productions, then tour 
the state for the rest of the year. 
"Perhaps they would prepare a 
three-show season with the shows 
suitable for high school, college, 
and adult audiences. They could 
do workshops, go into the schools, 
and work with the students. It's 
done in a lot of states, and I'd like 
to see Centenary organize it for 

our state." 

And when the curtain goes up, 
it will be a new maroon one given 
to the Theatre Department by 
Charlton Lyons, Jr., whose 
mother built the Playhouse. 

There's nothing quiet about 
Centenary's Theatre Depart- 
ment. "We do a lot for a little

The Dining Room 

by A. R. Gurney, Jr. 

brilliantly conceived and richly 
humorous theatrical tour de 
force (and long run off-Broadway 
success) in which six performers 
portray a wide array of diverse 
characters as they delineate the 
dying life-style of wealthy 
WASPdom, and the now 
neglected room which was once a 
vital center of family life. 

"...hilarious and touching. . .as 
comic sketch crazily succeeds 
comic sketch a whole pattern of 
American life emerges..." Clive 
Barnes, N. Y. POST. 

The play is set in the dining 
room of a typical well-to-do 
household, the place where the 
family assembled daily for 
breakfast and dinner and for any 
and all special occasions. The 
action is comprised of a mosaic 
of interrelated scenes - some 
funny, some touching, some 
rueful - which, taken together, 
create an in-depth portrait of a 
vanishing species: the upper 
middle class WASP. The actors 
change roles from little boys to 
stern grandfathers, and from 
giggling teenage girls to Irish 
housemaids. Each vignette in- 
troduces a new set of people and 
events: a father lectures his son 
on grammar and politics; a boy 
returns from boarding school to 
discover his mother's infidelity; 
a senile grandmother doesn't 
recognize her own sons at 
Christmas dinner; a daughter, 
her marriage a shambles, pleads 

futilely to return home, etc. 
Dovetailing swiftly and 
smoothly, the varied scenes 
coalesce, ultimately, into a 
theatrical experience of ex- 
ceptional range, compassionate 
humor and abundant humanity. 

The cast for the Centenary 
College Theatre Departments 
opening production, and their 
entry in the XVI American 
College Theatre Festival, has 
been selected by director Robert 
R. Buseick. 

The six actors performing the 
sixty characters in "THE 
DINING ROOM" will be Cynthia 
Hawkins, Deidre Love, Todd T. 
Moore, Lee Morgan, Kerri 
Rivers and Malcolm A. Wills. 
"The Dining Room" is a richly 
woven, imaginative, affectionate 
and often hilarious look at a 
vanishing breed - the American 
upper middle class. 

Miss Hawkins brings a wealth 
of experience to the stage with 
this assortment of characters in 
"The Dining Room." In the 
summer production of "The 
Heiress" she played Marion 
Almond. Cindy's performances 
as Sissy "Come Back to the 5 
and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy 
Dean," Miss Amelia in "Ballad 
of the Sad Cafe," the wife in 
"Rashomon," and Emily Bronte 
in "Masterpieces" have 
established her as one of the 
areas' most talented and 
promising actresses. Her roles in 
"Madame de Sade" as Renee de 
Sade and "My Sister In This 

House" as Christine brought 
Cindy two Irene Ryan Awards at 
The American College Theatre 
Festival. Cindy received her B.A. 
in Theatre last year from Cen- 
tenary, but has returned for a 
fifth year to work toward a 
teacher certification. 

Deidre Love is a sophomore 
theatre major from Hallsville, 
Texas making her first ap- 
pearance on the Marjorie Lyons 
stage. Prior to college Ms. Love 
played Beatrice in "The Effect of 
Gamma Rays on Man in the 
Moon Marigolds," Genny in 
"Bring Back Birdie," Ursula in 
"Bye Bye Birdie" and Mercy 
Lewis in "The Crucible." Dee is 
also a member of the newly 
formed dance company, 
"Escaped Images" at Centenary 

Todd Moore was last seen on 
the Playhouse stage as the oldest 
Snow son in the 1977 summer 
musical "Carousel." Since that 
time he has graduated from 
Southfield, attended Washington 
and Lee for two years, and is 
currently a senior English major 
at Centenary College. He has 
appeared previously in a 
Gaslight production. Last year 
Todd was the Editor of the 
Centenary College Yearbook, the 

A junior Theatre Major at 
Centenary Lee Morgan brings a 
varied theatre background to the 
many roles he will be playing in 
"The Dining Room." Lee has 
composed music for productions 

of "My Sister In This House" and 
been properties master for 
"Madame de Sade." For Peter 
Pan Players he played Dick in 
"Mary Poppins" and at Cen- 
tenary he's appeared in "The 
Ballad of the Sad Cafe," "No, No 
Nanette," "Medea," "As You 
Like It," "Rashmon," "Trixie 
True," "Teen Detective," and 
"Come Back to the 5 and Dime, 
Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean." 

Ms. Rivers was the Irish maid, 
Maria in the past summer 
production of i "The Heiress" at 
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse and 
was the stage manager for 
"ANNIE." Following her 1978 
graduation from Centenary with 
a theatre degree, she spent three 
years in Washington, D.C. where 
she appeared in a production of 
"Man of La Mancha." At Mar- 
jorie Lyons, Kerri scored 
triumphs as Myra in "Battle of 
Angels," Mildred in "The Secret 
Affairs of Mildred Wild," and 
Mona in "Dames at Sea." Kerri 
won two Rivertowne Players 
Awards for "Hedda Gabler" and 
"Battle of Angels. M She is 
currently employed at 
Gremillion and Pou Advertising. 

Malcolm W. Wills is a junior 
transfer from Lon Morris College 
majoring in Theatre. He has done 
a great deal of theatre in Hawaii 
which is his family home. 
Malcolm has appeared in 
productions of "Guys and Dolls," 
"Oliver Twist," "Lil' Abner," 
"South Pacific," "Hamlet," and 

"Hot L. Baltimore." 

The sets and lights are being 
designed by Lee Ellen Holloway, 
the resident designer and 
technical director at Centenary 
College. Ms. Holloway received 
her Masters degree from San 
Francisco State. In California 
she worked at the Actor's Ark 
and designed lights for "Gianni 
Schicci" at San Francisco State. 
In Shreveport, Lee Ellen has 
designed sets and lights for 
"Private Lives" and lights for 
"Tosca." As an actress she has 
been seen in "Celebration," 
"Cabaret," and "Oklahoma" 
winning the Times Award for 
Best Actress. She designed the 
sets for "Annie" and "The 

Other staff members for "The 
Dining Room" will include 
costumes by Patric McWilliams,

Room" will open on October 10 
and tickets are priced at $3.00 for 
students not attending Centenary 
and $6.00 for adults. A special

Is it VCR or is it reel? 

Trepidation is spreading: 
"Where's the movie gonna be this 
week — the Coffeehouse or the 
SUB stage?" 

Calm down. The Coffeehouse 
has flicks every weekend 
(Saturday and Sunday nights) 
and is now alternating with the 
SUB stage in showing films Bi- 
weekly on Wednesday and 
Friday nights. Check with your 
brand new SGA calender and 
note how every other Wednesday 
and Friday has "VCR movie, 
Coffeehouse" marked down. All 
clear now? 

What kind of movies are 
planned for which nites? We are 
retaining the practice of showing 
the same film on Wednesday and 
Friday, running the more recent, 
"big" movies. Sunday night films 
are different, but follow the same 
criterion as the Wed.-Fri. night 
movies. That leaves us Saturday 
night to play with. 

If a party requested NIGHT OF 

ORANGE, or ZORRO, Saturday 
night would be the night to show 
them. We are planning on films 
MAX (predecessor to the ROAD 
BOY AND HIS DOG, as well as 
Midnight-cult type movies to give 
us that experience of educational 
cultural diversity that Centenary 
is famous for. 

Film requests are encouraged. 
We need that feedback. If you 
have a film in mind that you 
would like to see, please write out 
the title and pass it on to Kathy 
Heard, the Student Activities 
Director, either by mail or in 
person. Her office is located next 
to the SUB stage, in the corner. A 
checklist may be available 
before the end of September to 
make things easier.

Sports Editor 

After starting off the season 
with two road losses and scoring 
only one goal, the Centenary 
soccer team swept a pair of home 
games, shutting out Ouachita 
Baptist 1-0 and defeating the 
University of Dallas 6-1. The 
victories raised the Gents' record 
to 2-2-0. 

Jeff Foster, the Gents' leading 
scorer, after four games with 
seven points, took a midf ield pass 
and drove down the spine through 
three defenders scoring the 
Gents only goal in the Ouachita 
victory. Jay Poss, the second 
leading scorer with four points, 

scored the Gents first two goals 
and Foster added three assists in 
the Dallas victory. Freshman 
Mark Knepper, after two games 
has only allowed 0.5 goals per 
game. The Gents took a season 
high 32 shots against Dallas, with 
14 of those shot at goal, scoring a 
season high six points. 

"We played very well as a 
team," head coach Glenn Evans 
said about the Dallas game, "We 
are taking better shots and our 

transition game is beginning to 
come around." 

Making up the 1983-84 soccer 
roster are: goalies - Kraig 
Bowen, Mark Knepper, Pablo 
Ossio, forwards - Jan Van 
Denberg, Jeff Foster, Jay Poss, 
Steve Sanguinetti, backers - Matt 
Cardillo, Doug Crone, John 
Graham, Jack Conner, Brad 
Hoge, Scott Davidson, Charlie 
Warren, Robert Miller, Keith 
McPherson, and John Lee.

The Gents picked up two road 
wins, Saturday, September 18, in 
a doubleheader against 
Louisiana College. It brought 
their total count to 4-1-1, four 
wins, one loss, and one tie. 

The first game was relatively 
quiet with the Wildcats leading 1- 
0, until the Gents exploded for 
four runs in the third inning. 
Mohon led off the inning with a 
walk and Tony Tefoya followed 
up with a single. Both were 
scored when Billy Harwell hit a 

three run homerun. Wasko 
reached first on an error by the 
Wildcats' first baseman and then 
stole second. Kubik then 
delivered a single scoring Wasko 
and ending the top of the third 
inning. The Gents leaded 4-1. The 
Wildcats scored two runs in the 
bottom of the third with the final 
score 4-3. 

Leading off the second game of 
the doubleheader, the Gents 
scored two runs in the first in- 
ning. Harwell delivered a single 
and was later scored when 
Williams drove him in. Several 
pitches later Williams scored on 
a wild pitch, closing the first 
inning 2-0. 

The Gents gathered three more 
runs in the third inning. They 
were aided by three walks, one 
sacrifice bunt, and two singles. 

Going into the fifth inning, the 
Gents still had an edge over 
Louisiana College with a 5-2 lead. 
Goldman led off with a single and 
stole second. Wayne Rathbun 
drove Goldman in a single. Nolfe 
reached base on a Wildcat error. 
Greene hit a single scoring Rath- 
bun and Nolfe. Greene later 
scored on a wild pitch. The 
Wildcats attempted to catch up in 
the bottom of the fifth and sixth 
innings scoring two runs. The 
Gents took their second win of the 
day 9-5. 

Centenary's itifle Team was 
defeated in its season opener by 
Northeast on September 17. 
Despite the loss Centenary 
placed in four of the top seven 
spots in the individual matches: 
2nd - Adam Harbuck (472), 3rd - 
Rick Kaiser (462), 6th - Connie 
Thode (438), 7th - Chris Edwards 
(435). In position results Adam 
Harbuck placed first in two 
events - high prone target and 

prone overall. 

The Rifle Team is coached by 
Captain John Cooley and its team 
members include: Steve Watson, 
Rick Kaiser, Adam Harbuck, 
Chris Edwards, Connie Thode, 
Ed Hand, Dave Shoffner, and 
Melanie Raichel. The next match? 
is scheduled for Friday, Sep-

Go Gents 

by Scott Andrews 

The air was jublant in Haines 
Gym as final cheerleader tryouts 
were underway Tuesday night. 
All the participants were ready, 
anxious, and willing to show their 
stuff and try to fill those precious 
openings. Most of the group 
arrived thirty to forty-five 
minutes early in order to practice 
their preps, cheers, and jumps. 
At 7:00 p.m. cheerleaders Scott 
Sexton, Jill Brown, Sue Haynie, 
Kenny Gele, and Lisa Chaisson 
began juding. The energy of the 
prospective cheerleaders filled 
the gym and everyone within 
with a special excitement. They 
chanted, cheered, jumped, and 

did fantastic doubles stunts while 
camera's clicked around them. 
"Most everyone was nervous," 
said Kolby Nix, one prospect, 
indicating that was good by 
saying, "the cheerleaders got to 
see how we did under pressure." 

After the tryouts, Judy 
Williams, another prospect, said, 
"make it or not I had fun." Five 
minutes after that statement. 
James lobby was a madhouse of 
screams and cheers as Jill Brown 
posted the list that brought 
Centenary's total number of 
cheerleaders to fifteen. 

Congratulations to new 
cheerleaders Rick Anders, Bill 
Ball, Susan Beauboeuf, Danny 

Gleason, Jennifer Holland, 
Donna Monk, Kolby Nix, Sandra 
Sherrod, Craig Spence, and Judy 
Williams. When asked what they 
thought about making the 
cheerleading squad, answers 
varied from Rick Anders' 
"suprise" to Danny Gleason's "I 
don't know I can't think right 
now." Craig Spence seemed to 
sum everything up by saving, 
"Go Gents." 

The cheerleaders will have thie 
first meeting Friday, to size for 
uniforms and begin planning 
money-making projects for the 
larger squad. 

"Go Gents." 

SGA Probe media funding 

Each year, the Student 
Government Association 
allocates the budgets for all 
media organizations on Cen- 
tenary's campus. Obviously, this 
is no easy task since the SGA is 
only given a certain amount of 
funds to divide. 

However, this year the SGA 
was faced with a new and dif- 
ferent kind of problem. In the 
middle of the summer, Thurn- 
dotte Baughman, SGA President, 
was told that the Youncopin staff 
went slightly over $4,000 over its 
budget for last year. The SGA 
had to get the bill paid and find 
out exactly what happened. 

On September 20, Todd Moore, 
the 1982-83 Yoncopin Editor, and 
Janie Flournoy, the yearbook 
advisor, went in front of the SGA 
to explain and give some insight 
as to the origin of the deficit. 
Moore stated that the deficit was 
caused by low ad sales and cost 
incurred due to proofsheet 
corrections and deadlines 
missed. During the questioning, 
Moore pointed the blame at the 
Yearbook's business manager 
and ad staff for causing the 
deficit through their poor per- 

However, when questioned on 
the origin of the deficit, Dawne 
Calhoun, this year's Yoncopin 
Editor, said that Moore's ex- 

pected amount of ad sales were 
"Obviously unobtainable," and 
that the missed deadlines showed 
the lack of organization of the 
staff. She also felt that the 
moment that Moore realized he 
was going over his budget, he 
should have immediately gone to 
the SGA for some assistance. 

The problem faced by the SGA 
now is how to determine who is 
responsible for the $4,000 deficit 
and how it is going to get paid. 

Should this years Yoncopin 
budget be cut the total amount of 
the deficit due to last year's 
Youncopin? Or should a small 
amount be taken out of each 
media organizations' budgets to 
cover the Youncopin deficit? 

No matter what is done to fix 
the problem now, the SGA wants 
to insure that a situation similar 
to this will not arise in the future. 
Junior SGA Senator Bob Thomas 
is currently working on a new by- 
law which would hold each media 
head i.e. Youncopin Editor, 
Conglomerate Editor, KSCL 
Manager, directly and personally 
responsible for working within 
their given budget. 

When told about this new by- 
law, several media heads 
claimed that they felt the by-law 
would be unreasonable since 
unexpected costs always arise. 
Calhoun went as far as saying 

that she may have to resign her 
position as Youncopin Editor if 
the proposed by-law is passed. 
Accordingly, several other media 
heads shared her feelings. 

The SGA feels confident that 
they will be able to work with all 
of the media heads and find a 
financial arrangement that will 
satisfy both the SGA's 
requirements and the media 
organization's needs. 

Weeks of hard work were put to the test Tuesday night as tryouts were 
held for cheerleader. Pictured are Susan Beauboeuf and Dan Gleason, 
two who made it. (Photo by Scott Andrews)

In a recent interview, Dr. 
Donald Webb, President of 
Centenary College, expressed an 
interest in the formation of a 
Crisis Awareness Committee to 
aid the Centenary community in 
coping with such varied 
problems as natural disasters, 
crime, and student emergencies. 

The committee's chief function 
would be to make students aware 
of what to do or who to contact in 
the event of a tornado of late 
night student emergency. It is 
hoped that this new sense of 
awareness would also serve to 
prevent some problems from 

developing at all. 

Initially, the committee would 
prepare a working paper which 
would be shared with the Senate,

In the past, the College has 
attempted to react intelligently 
to whatever situations might 
develop. President Webb 

enrolled in his or her class. In

administration realized that 
without the students the 
university could not function. 

Lately there has been some 
question as to who should ac-

policies. The recent Cafeteria 
policy has obviousy caused quite 
a bit of unrest among Cen-

though nothing can be done, that 
we must merely accept the 
conditions that we are forced to 
finance. Fortunately this is not 
the case. 

Centenary, just as any other 
institution, is politicised. We as 
the students play a vital role in 
this political system. The S.G.A., 
in theory, is our representative 
body. In practice, however, this 
is not always the case. Though 
the blame should not rest on the

After much consideration, 
particularly in light of his recent 
faux pas concerning the com- 
position of his coal-leasing study 
commission, I can only conclude, 
however belatedly, that the time 
has come for Interior Secretary 
James Gaius Watt to resign. 

While one can not deny that 
James Watt has brought a 
business-like management style 
to the Interior Department, his 
past actions reveal a man whose 
heartlessness regarding en- 
vironmental issues is equaled 
only by his political ineptitude.' 

The environmental record of 
James Watt, prior to his ap- 
pointment as Interior Secretary, 
speaks just as badly of Mr. Watt 
as his record following his 
nomination by Ronald Reagan. 
In the mid-1960's, Watt, as a 
lawyer, opposed needed 
government regulations 
regarding strip-mining and 
water pollution. Watt, in the 
years prior to the Reagan 
presidency, was associated with 
the Mountain States Legal 
Foundation (M.S.L.F.) an 
organization that worked for the 
repeal of Federal environmental 
statutes. A participant in the so- 

called "Sagebrush Rebellion," a 
movement with goals similiar to 
those of the M.S.L.F., Watt, as 
Interior Secretary, appointed 
many of his fellow "Sagebrush 
Rebels" to high Interior 
Department posts. The thought of 
"Sagebrush Rebels" in the In- 
terior Department strikes me as 
rather ironic, since technically 
they would be "attempting to 
enforce" laws which only a few 
years before they /had actively 
opposed. The course that James 
Watt has pursued as Interior 
Secretary has, unfortunately, 
shown little indication of being 
any different from the one that he 
pursued as a lawyer opposing 
environmental laws. Thus far, 
during his tenure in office, 
Secretary Watt has, among other 
things, halted the expansion of 
the national parks system, 
allowed the development of 
mineral resources in protected 
lands, virtually halted additions 
to the "Endangered Species 
List," and opened the way for 
such permanent developments as 
roads in wilderness areas. 

Secretary Watt also seems, to 
me, to be constantly striving to 
reach new heights of political 
ineptitude. During the past 2V2 
years, James Watt has managed 
to compare environmentalists to 

Nazis (in their zeal for a central 
government), to offend virtually 
every fan of the Beach Boys, and 
to say that the Republicans were 
the only true Americans. Then, of 
course, there is my personal 
favorite, where Secretary Watt 
stated that he believed that we 
didn't need to worry about the 
environment, because with the 
Second Coming in twenty years, 
it all wouldn't really matter. 
Watt's recent reference to his 
coal-leasing study commission as 
being composed oa "a black, a 
woman, 2 Jews, and a cripple," 
only serves to highlight the fact 
that the job Secretary Watt 
seems to do best is make off-the- 
cuff remarks which embarass 
the President. 

There are, of course, those who 
will claim that Watt is merely a 
lightning rod designed to draw 
the fire away from President 
Reagan over his environmental 
record. I, for one, always un- 
derstood that it was the purpose 
of a lightning rod to deflect away 
any lightning which might come 
its way, not to create lightning 
storms, so that it would have 
something to absorb. And to me, 
that's what James Watt seems to 
be doing: causing more trouble 
for the President than he 

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Now that fall is trying 
desperately to arrive, men and 
women across the United States 
are rushing to shopping malls 
and boutiques in order to pur- 
chase the latest fall fashions. 
They will scratch and bite to be 
the first to wear the latest of- 
ferings from the salons of Dior, 
Chanel, and de la Renta. Their 
nostrils will flare happily at the 
first scent of new Gucci leather. 

At this very moment, hundreds 
of men and women munch 
Godiva chocolates while they 
scrutinize Patek Philippe wat- 
ches and wait for the shops lining 
Fifth Avenue and Rodeo Drive to 
fling their doors wide open. 

What fools they are! There is 
no need whatsoever to spend 
large amounts of money on new 
clothing. With a few alterations, 
last year's fall fashions will pass 
easily for this year's. 

This fall, clothing fashions 
have not changed enough to 
warrant drastic alterations on 
last year's clothes. If lapels or 
collars are too wide, simply snip 

off the excess material and 
adhere the edges with Scotch 
tape. Pleats may be removed 
from skirts by ironing and 
starching them flat. If pleats 
refuse to become un-pleated, 
popsicle sticks glued horizontally 
across the pleats should provide 
to be most effective. 

Hats are definitely "in" for 
Fall '83. If spending $30-50 on a 
hat is not appealing, try looking 
in thrift shops or "antique' junk 
stores. A hat purchased at one of 
these places will be old enough to 
appear modern and best of all, it 
will be authentic right down to 
the moth-holes. 

Shoes are always a fashion 
headache. This year, why not 
alleviate that headache by 
becoming a do-it-yourself shoe- 
repair person. If the heels on last 
year's shoes are too high, simply 
saw them off to the correct 
height. If they are too low, small 
pieces of wood whittled to the 
proper shape and height may be 
glued to the existing heel to in- 
crease height. Dying and 
bleaching work well to change 
the color of leather. If shoes and 

accessories are vinyl or patent 
leather, four to six coats of paint 
should provide satisfactory 

Hairstyles change as rapidly as 
the management at a fast-food 
restaurant. And the prices 
hairstylists charge go up even 
faster. To beat the high cost of 
grooming, simply adopt one 
hairstyle until you own con- 
trolling stock in at least three 
major corporations. Women 
should wear their hair in buns or 
ponytails to disguise fallen 
bouffants and overgrown wedge 
cuts. This is simple, and is 
always considered to be chic and 
sophisticated. Men might choose 
crewcuts, mohawks or other 
related styles. These are New 
Wave, rugged, and if worn with 
proper attire, punk. 

These are but a few tips for fast 
fall fashion updates. Others, such 
as sanding leather jackets to 
make them appear to be suede, 
are too common to discuss. This 
year, be wise and avoid the Fifth 
Avenue rush. Stay home and

"What can be the scope of 
legitimate mutual discourse of a 
state whose values permit such 
atrocities, and what to make of a 
regime which establishes one set 
of standards for itself and 
another for the rest of mankin- 
d?" These are the words used by 
President Ronald Reagan to 
express American and in- 
ternational shock and dismay at 
the Soviet destruction of a 
Korean jet liner. Over the three 
weeks since the incident on 
September 1, the Soviet Union 
has been condemned and at- 
tacked from all corners of the 


globe. In that time, nations 
around the world have, in various 
ways, shown their disapproval. 
For example: The Soviet airline, 
Aeroflot, has been officially 
banned in some 15 countries; the 
United States and her NATO 
allies officially condemned the 
act at the European Security 
Conference in Madrid; the 
United States has suspended 
trade, transportation, and 
cultural negotiation; South 
Korea has discontinued its at- 
tempt to establish "cool 
relations" with Moscow; the UN 
Security Council debated the 

issue, and requested an apology 
and reparations (the USSR 
vetoed the debate and refused to 
release and apology, or ad- 
mission of guilt, not to mention 
the reparations to the victims 

In a retrospective view of these 
actions, the outlook does not look 
promising. Granted, the loss of 
life is of the greatest regret! 
However the entire incident and 
the actions taken by the nations 
of the world will in the long run 
harm the global political scene. 
Many feel that harsher 
retaliatory actions should have 
been initiated. As well, these 
people further argue that the 
Soviet Union will feel no pain 
from the actions already taken. 
This may be true from where we 

Halting the Crime wave of '83 

A distinguished looking, 
middle-aged man stepped into an 
ordinarily-looking telephone 
booth and proceeded to remove a 
hidden tape recorder and manila 
envelope from a secret com- 
partment. After checking to 
make sure that no one was 
looking, he turned the tape player 
on and opened the envelope. 

"Good morning, Mr. Phelps," 
the tape said. "Centenary 
College is in the midst of a major 
crime wave, a crime wave which 
must be stopped. Your mission, 
should you decide to accept it, is 
to stop the Centenary crime 
wave. As always, should you or 
any of your IMF force be killed or 
captured, the Secretary will deny 
any knowledge of your existence. 
This tape will self-destruct in five 
Later that day— 

In an apartment in the city, 
after much consideration, Jim 
Phelps made the phone call that 
he had been dreading for years. 
After several minutes of dealing 
with the federal bureaucracy, 
Phelps finally reached the 

"Yes, Mr. Secretary, this is 
James Phelps, of the IMF. We've 
decided not to accept the Cen- 
tenary mission. It's just too 
impossible for us. I know that 
we've < never turned down an 
assignment before, but we were 
planning to have a beach party 
that weekend, too. Yes, sir, thank 
you sir. I'm sure you can find 
someone else for this one. Good 
day, Mr. Secretary." 
The next day— 

An elderly Chinese gentleman 
appeared at the President's door 
and requested to see Dr. Webb. 
Later, in the President's office, 
the elderly man proved to be 
anything but elderly or Chinese. 

"So you want to hire the A- 
Team?" the unidentified man 

asked a perplexed Dr. Webb. 

Before President Webb could 
reply, the mysterious man 
identified himself as Colonel 
John Smith, of the A-Team, and 
struck a match for his cigar on 
the President's desk. 

"Here's the plan! We'll draw 
the crooks out into Hardin Field 
and engage them in a fire-fight. 
Murdock can borrow a B-52 from 
the airbase across the river and 
hit 'em from the air, if we need it, 
too. 'Course that'll be messy, but 
it'll get the job done. I love it 
when a plan comes together!" 
Smith said, puffing contentedly 
on his cigar. 

"I've changed my mind. I don't 
want to hire the A-Team," the 
flabbergasted President 
mumbled, just before a hulking 
black man with a mohawk and a 
large quantity of gold jewelry 
burst through a wall. 
The next day— 

The noonday crowd in the 
coffeehouse was startled by the 
appearance of a tall, 
distinguished man in a tuxedo. 
This mystery man held the 
crowd's attention only as long as 
the commercial interrupting "All 
My Children" lasted, with its 
completion their attention 
returned to their soap. 

"Vodka martini, shaken not 
stirred, with a lemon twist?" 
requested the mysterious man, in 
a very formal British accent. 

"I'm sorry, sir... We don't serve 
alcohol here." the rather stunned 
coffeehouse clerk replied. 

"What? No vodka martinis, no 
exotic locales and no beautiful 
women with exotic names. 
Connery and Lazenby never

Well, I shan't stand for it, 00

A day later 

The situation had finally gotten 
drastic and drastic situations 
require drastic actions. The 
crime wave had engulfed Cen- 
tenary and was, in fact, ham- 
pering the operating of the 
College and its classes. Sensing 
that there was only option which 
remained open to him, President 
Webb called the Sunnyvale 
Retirement Home. Centenary's 
greatest hero had always been 
the Gent, or at least he had been 
until he had retired following his 
defeat by APATHY during the 
'70's. Now, he was being called 
back for one more battle. 

There had been reports that his 
powers had weakened during his 
retirement, but those reports 
appeared to be incorrect, for the 
Gent grew stronger from the 
moment his ambulance entered 
the Centenary campus. The evil 
crime wave, apparently sensing 
the Gent's presence, im- 
mediately engaged him in 
combat on Hardin Field. 

The pitched battle between the 
Gent and the crime wave lasted 
for more than an hour, and 
finally ended with the Gent's 

However, as the two opposing 
forces duelled, a crowd of 
students gathered around the 
fringes of Hardin Field to watch 
the battle. And now, with their 
hero defeated, and the crime 
wave gloating insufferably, a 
spontaneous reaction swept 
through the crowd, and cheers 
for the Gent were yelled like 
never before. The support of the 
students revitalized the Gent, 
who proceeded to get up, brushed 
the dirt from his suit and 
renewed his battle with the 
crime wave. Their battle ended 
seconds later, with a brilliant 
flash of light. Only the Gent now 
remained, a victorious Gent. 

stand. However, the repercussions 
economically, politically and 
culturally will be irreversible for 
some time. The most detrimental 
result will be the further distance 
created in the gap between the 
two political and economic 
cultures of the East and West. It 
also puts arms negotions on a 
cold back burner. In this regard 
the US will only increase its 
determination to place nuclear 
warheads in Europe, widening 
the gap even further. 

Unfortunately it is the 
aggressive nature of the Soviet 
government and their increasing 
stubborness to defend them- 
selves from the "Imperialistic 
Capitalists," that may eventually 
result in a real and catostrophic 
political conflict. I will agree that 

the Soviets have the right to 
defend their airspace and 
territorial rights, however that 
does not make their actions 
earlier this month completely 
legitimate. They, as a nation in 
our modern world, have the 
responsibility to act with 
toleration and moderation! In- 
stead they (the Soviet leader- 
ship; not necessarily the Russian 
people) consistantly display an 
outright disregard for in- 
ternational law and rights. They 
have throughout their 66 year 
history, bullied their way through 
the "china shop" of international 
politics. One day, the situation 
will be pushed to the breaking 
point because of the ideological 

stubborness of nations.

Senate Minutes 

by Clay Robertson 

(This is merely a report of the 
Senate meeting of 27 September 
and does not represent the of- 
ficial minutes of the Senate.) 

The Tuesday, September 27, 
1983 meeting of the Student 
Senate was called to order by 
President Thurndotte Baughman 
at 11:06 a.m. The minutes from 
the previous Senate meeting 
were approved, with one 
correction by Senator Mike 
Fertitta. Treasurer Diane 
Fowler reported that the S.G.A. 
would receive $42,863.88 for the 
Fall Semester, the amount 
consisting of student fees and 
carryover from last year. 

Under "Committee Reports," 
the Senate heard from its ad hoc 
committees on Graduation, Caf 
Policies, and Library 

Typewriters. Senator Kelly 
Crawford asked all senators, to 
turn in their petitions concerning 
graduation as soon as possible, 
and also stated that a final 
decision on the date of graduation 
should be reached in the October 
17 faculty meeting. Senator Matt 
Robinson of the Caf Policies 
presented several suggestions 
that had been brought to him 
concerning the new CAf policy. 
After much consideration, the 
Senate approved a motion 
reaffirming its support of the new 
Caf policies, with the exception of 

Article 4, which prohibits the 
removal of such items as ice 
cream cones, and soft drinks in 
small personal containers from 
the Caf. Senator Bob Thomas 
presented information con- 
cerning the purchase of two 
typewriters for student use, to be 
placed in the Library. The Senate 
approved an outlay of $1418.30 for 
the project. 

Under the heading of "Old 
Business," the Senate debated on 
the extent of its involvement in 
the Woodrow Willson Fellowship 
program. After a lengthy 
discussion, the S.G.A. agreed 
upon a $1500 outlay of funds for 
the Fall Semester only. The $1500 
would represent slightly more 
than one-half of the money 
required, and included the 
stipulation that the Senate be 
allowed to choose the speaker. 
The Senate also choose designs 
by Emily Canter and Mitch 
Pengra for their T-shirts. Senator 
Richard Wallace announced that 
the Fall Blood Drive would be 
held on Monday, October 24, from 
9 a.m. - 4 p.m., either in the SUB 
or in the Blood Center van. 
Senator Ron Whitler also an- 
nounced that talks were un- 
derway with LSUS concerning a 
football game between the two 

The Senate adjourned at ap- 
proximately 12:05 p.m.

I appreciate all of the response 
I have received concerning 
imporovements on the SUB. 
Allow me to update the im- 
provements we have made over 
the past two weeks. We have 
select-a-vision on both the big 
screen T.V. and on the set on the 
stage (yes friends and neighbors, 
it is finally working). We also 
have M-TV in stereo in the 
Coffeehouse. Sorry, the 
Cablevision people will not allow 
us to have HBO. The Coffeehouse 
has a new item on the menu, iced 
tea. It's a nice break from cokes. 

Never fear, the pool tables are 
on the road to repair. Plans are 
being made to renovate them. So, 
please bear with us until then. 
The ping pong paddle situation is 
also being checked into. We are 
striving to bring you the best. 

I want to thank everyone who 
came to the Banana Split Bash. It 
was a smashing success! I never 
knew there were 101 ways to 
design a Banana Split. It was 
gluttony in its purest form. 

I'm pleased to announce the 
1983-84 S.A.A.C. members: Joey 
Crayne, Carolyn Benham, Sue 
Joiner, Richard Wallace, Ann 
Beaty, Angie Hendrix, Karen 
Mulling, Brad Lyon, Adam Myrs, 
Jennifer Holland and Jeanne 
Clampitt. Feel free to contact 
these students if you have any 
suggestions or ideas. 

Don't forget to keep those 
cards and letters coming. The 
SUB is here to serve you the best 
we can. I will new leave you on 
this note... Do you ever wonder 
where that short sidewalk in 
front of Hamilton Hall leads to? 
Until later, have a great week. 


On Saturday, Oct. 8, an un- 
precedented event will occur: 
Centenary will take a giant 
leap... backward! 

More precisely, the Office of 
Alumni Relations has planned a 
rare experience for Centenary 
College Alumni and friends. The 
event includes a tour of the 
restored Centenary campus in 
Jackson, La., built in 1825, as well 
as other sights in Jackson's 
historic district, and luncheon at 
Asphodel Plantation with owner 
Mark Couhig, a Centenary 
graduate, as host. 

Area alumni wishing to make 
the tour should contact Chris

Relations, (318) 869-5151, by Sept.

Around Town 

By Tina Hackett 
Larry Morse 

Are you looking for some fun 
and excitement in your Saturday 
evenings? Are you tired of going 
out to those same old places? If 
you answered yes to these two 
questions, 610 Texas Restaurant 
and Bar is the answer for you ! ! ! 

Located at, you guessed it, 610 
Texas Street, this eatery offers a 
little something for everyone. If 
you are just in the mood for 
drinks and munchies, have a 
good time trying to make up your 
mind. 610 has a large drink menu 
consisting of their own specialty 
drinks and double-shot highballs. 
The appetizer menu consists of a 
large variety of fried vegetables 
and nachos, here again, quite a 
bit to choose from! 

Moving on to bigger and tastier 
things, the entrees are the har- 
dest to choose from. 610 has a 
complete Mexican menu, as well 
as burgers, steaks, salads, and 
chicken selections. Also on the 

list are a wide assortment of side 
orders including french fries and 
onion rings. We chose the Ribeye 
steak and the "Mushrooms, 
Chicken, and More." The steak 
was terrific and it was deliriously 
tender, while the chicken a huge 
quantity (enough for two), was 
the most outstanding. It is a 
breast of chicken smothered in 
mushrooms and mozerella 
cheese, accompanied by a side 
order of fried mushrooms. 

Even though we thoroughly 
enjoyed our food, we weren't 
quite satisfied with the service. 
Our waiter was very nice, but he 
just didn't know where to go or 
how to get there in a hurry. 

610 Texas is open Monday 
through Thursday from 11:00 
a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and Friday 
and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 
midnight. They do not accept 
checks, but they do welcome Visa 
and Mastercard. So, next time 
you get the munchies, get 
"AROUND TOWN" to 610 Texas.

We would like to thank the 
Zeta's for our "Happy Hour" 

swap last Friday. We had a blast 
and found it to be an excellent 
head-start for the weekend. Las 
Vegas night was definitely a 
party and we appreciate the good 
time girls! Our ROTC-KA 
football team is shaping up a bit 
with a recent victory over TKE, 
20-9! The Pledge Class will most 
likely have the Kamakaz's chair 
primed for our Thursday night 

Everyone be sure to come 
down for our routine study break 
party which is tonight! Come get 
wild for a few seconds, we don't 
mind. Nolan Gregory has found a 
new way to drink a case in a 
hurry! Keep it up Nolan, or 
should I say, keep it down! The 
KA's are getting psyched for our 
Friday mixer with the Tri-Delt's 
from LSUS in hope of obtaining 
some new pen pals. Mike Talley's 
car, the sled is now named 
"Devastation Incorporated" 
after it put the big thump on a 
telephone pole which some how 
got in his way. Mike always said, 
"If you don't like the way I drive, 
get off the sidewalk!" 

The Pledges are starting a 

furniture moving service on 
location only. Any non serious 
inquiries, be sure to call the KA 

All of the KA's would like to see 
massive quantities of people at 
the house tonight so be there 
around 8:00 p.m. until? Then 
folks, we leave with one final 
word "Bye-Ya!" 

Tau Kappa Epsilon 

We have proudly pledged two 
more worthy men into associate 
membership last week. They are 
Charlie Warren and Amar 
Amaouba. We are proud to have 
them with us now. Our Motown 
party went well for another year. 
It may be that the theme is 
outgrowing the age and memory 
of the students here at Cen- 
tenary. However, most people 
don't remember what Motown 
was, so I'll remind you. It's a 
suburb in Detroit where everyone 
gets down and boogies. 
Congratulations goes to the 
football team, they were valiant. 
Congratulations also goes to the 
soccer team for their wins this 
past weekend. 

Zeta Tau Alpha 

WOW! What a party! The Zetas 
would like to thank everyone who 
helped make Las Vegas Night a 
huge success. In particular, we

Roger Burleigh, Shawn Calhoun, 
Lanny Clement, Mary Krecker,

Kubik named 

Jim Kubik, second baseman 
for the Gents baseball team, has 
been named to the Louisiana 
Sports Writers Association All- 
State baseball team. 

Kubik is a switch-hitter from 
Clarendon Hills, Illinois, who 
transferred to Centenary from 
Pensacola Junior College. He will 
be the only returning player in 
the state at second base who 
received more than three votes 
on the All-State team. Jim 
started in all 41 games, was voted 
to the T.A.A.C. all-tournament 
team going seven for ten with two 
home runs and four RBI's, and 
led the Gents in four categories: 
hitting (.352), at bats (139), runs 
(39), and hits (49). 

Starting the '83 season with a 
.212 average after 12 games, he 
came on strong leading the team 
at the plate with a .352 average. 
He also had 18 walks and four of 
in stolen bases. 

"Jim certainly deserved to be 
on the All-State baseball team." 
Coach James Farrar said.

Trying to improve KSCL's image 

By Susan Scott 

KSCL Station Manager Betsy 
Camp is greatly improving the 
station's image with students and 
the public by implementing a 
variety of new procedures and 
ideas. Her station crew consists 
of several members ready to 
help: Frank Serio, Program 
Director; John Villasana, Music 
Director; Brian Dauphin, News 
Director; Larry Clifton, Chief 
Engineer; and Lee Ellen 
Holloway, KSCL Advisor. 

Camp's first task is to en- 
courage students to listen to 
KSCL more often, a difficult job 
since the dormitories here on 
ca*n]Kss cannot even receive the 
station's signal. By extending the 
transmitter (which is inside the 
belltower on top of the SUB) only 
50 ft., KSCL could increase its 
broadcast signal and be heard all 
over the greater Shreveport- 
Bossier City area. Camp feels 
that a second-hand transmitter 
could be purchased for a few 
hundred dollars. The station is 
also checking into the possibility 
of getting a transmitter donated. 
Unfortunately, some feel that 
this 50 ft. antenna would be un- 
sightly atop the SUB, and this 

plan has received criticism for 
that reason in the past. The 
station manager also feels that 
being able to broadcast in stereo 
is of primary importance. KSCL 
has been negogiating with local 
radio station KEEL for the 
possibility of getting a control 
board. This piece of equipment 
would enable KSCL to broadcast 
in stereo. 

Besides trying to build a good 
reputation with the students at 
Centenary, Camp is trying to re- 
establish KSCL's image with the 
public. Every two weeks one of 
the station crew call in the top 35 
play list to College Media, Inc. 
(CMD. CMI then publishes the 
playlist in the New Music Report, 
a bi-weekly trade journal for 
Progressive radio stations. 
Record companies read these 
playlists and send records to 
stations who play a lot of their 
label. In the past, this important 
duty had not been maintained, 
and, as a result, the station did 
not receive many records. Last 
week, however, Camp spoke with 
representatives of such im- 
pressive companies as RCA, 
Geffen, and Warner Bros. 

One problem KSCL has had in 

the past is student disagreement 
with the Progressive music that 
is played. Camp stressed in a 
recent interview that the radio 
station will not become just 
another way to hear commercial 
bands. "We don't want to be 
redundant," she said, adding that 
students can listen to KMBQ for 
"top 40s", but those who desire 
variety will have KSCL. Students 
have complained that the 
campus station plays obscure 

music that most people don't like. 
Camp defended KSCL 
programming by saying that it is 
merely ahead of its time. For 
example, the Rhythm of Youth 
album by Men Without Hats was 
released on June 24, 1983. One 
particular single, a song called 
"Safety Dance," began to 
receive airplay from KSCL 
alsmost immediately. Com- 
mercial radio station KMBQ 
began to play "Safety Dance" 

until six weeks after its KSCL 

Camp" feels all these efforts by 
KSCL to revamp itself are going 
to benefit the entire Centenary 

Campus deejays are in short 
supply for KSCL. Anyone in- 
terested (no experience 
necessary) should attend the 
station's weekly meeting at 5:20 
on Sunday in the KSCL offices on 
the second floor of the SUB. 

Centenary loses a friend 

Dr. J. Kenneth Shamblin, 
bishop of the Louisiana Con- 
ference of the United Methodist 
Church since 1976 and he was a 
member of the Centenary College 
Board of Trustees, died Monday 
at 7:35 p.m. in Baton Rouge. 

Dr. Shamblin, 66, suffered a 
stroke in his home and was ad- 
mitted to Baton Rouge General 
Hospital Thursday. He was to 
retire in June. 

A native of Ozark, Ark., he 
served Pulaski Heights 
Methodist Church in Little Rock, 

Ark., from 1948-1961 and St. 
Luke's United Methodist in 
Houston from 1961 until his 
election to the episcopacy in 

He was a graduate of the 
University of Arkansas, Southern 
Methodist University's Perkins 
School of Theology, and Hendrix 
College. He was a delegate to the 
1966 World Methodist Conference 
in London and served several 
times as a delegate to the 
General Conference of the United 
Methodist Church. 

Dr. Harvey Williamson, 
director of the denemination's 
Louisiana Council on Ministries, 
said the vacancy created by 
Shamblin's death will likely be 
filled by a retired bishop until a 
new leader can be elected. 

The family requests memorials 
be sent to the United Methodist 
Foundation of Louisiana or St. 
Luke's Church Foundation in 
Houston through any United 
Methodist Church. 

Homecoming: The discussion continues 

By Mickey Zemann 

With the exception of the past 
two or three years, Homecoming 
at Centenary College has 
traditionally been an Alumni- 
sponsored event. The term 
"sponsored" is said to mean to 
both organize and finance the 
event. However, in the past 
decade (8 years), Alumni 
response to Homecoming has 
been rather poor. For example, 
at last year's Homecoming 
reception only 26 Homecoming 
Game basketball tickets were 
purchased by Alumni. 

In order to cut down on some of 
the costs of Homecoming with out 

depriving any of the alumni or 
students of the traditionally 
expected Homecoming events 
last year, Chris Webb, Director 
of Alumni Relations at Cen- 
tenary, decided to reduce the 
amount of money spent on ad- 
vertising and promoting 
Homecoming. Instead of sending 
out letters or brochures to 
Alumni, Webb enclosed a flyer 
with all the Homecoming events 
and information in Centenary, 
the Alumni quarterly. Although 
Webb did suceed in reducing the 
promotional costs, the cost of 
printing the flyer, attaching it on 
to the Centenary, and paying the 
postage for the alumni who 

responded by returning the 
postage-paid envelopes cost 
approximately $1,200. 

Besides the promotional costs 
involved, the Alumni also 
finances the flowers for the 
Queen, her Court and their 
escorts, the decoration contest, 
the Alumni reception, and 
various other Alumni related 

As you can see, Homecoming 
at Centenary is a big event to 
sponsor both financially and 
organizationally, and although 
Chris Webb and the Alumni have 
in the past sponsored all of the 
previously mentioned events, the 
question of who is responsible for 

the Homecoming Dance has been 
tossed to and from the Alumni to 
the Student Government 
Association several times over. 
On the matter of the 
Homecoming Dance, Webb tends 
to see both sides of the issue. Both 
Webb and the Alumni would like 
Centenary to continue having a 
traditional Homecoming 
weekend — complete with the 
dance. However, Alumni par- 
ticipation in this event is ex- 
tremely low - if there is any at all. 
With all of the expense that 
Homecoming involves, Webb 
feels that the Alumni should 
sponsor those Homecoming 
events which involve the Alumni. 

Traditionally, at Centenary, the 
dance has not fallen into that 
category. Webb has expressed 
that since the Homecoming 
Dance is basically for the 
students, the Student Govern- 
ment Association should sponsor 
this event and until the two 
groups begin some serious 
communication on the subject, no 
immediate plans for a 
Homecoming dance are being 
made. So whether or not Cen- 
tenary will even have a 
Homecoming dance is undecided, 
let alone who is going to sponsor

"All things must pass," 
but Homecoming 

October 4, 1983 
Dear Editors, 

This is a commentary on the 
"Letters to the Editors" column. 
I believe that we, the students, do 
not take full advantage of this 
sounding board. 

I know we all have lots of 
campus comments (both positive 
and negative) , and that we voice 
them all the time. But we don't 
always get a response, do we? 
This is why we should use this 
"Letters to the Editors" column 
Some people really do read this 
paper — not just the comic strips. 

Also, when I say to write to the 
paper as a means of voicing our 
opinions, I mean both positive 
and negative opinions. It's not 
that I think this college is perfect, 
it's just that we all tired of 
reading things on the order of 
"The caf food is yukky." All 
right, so what if your mother 

cooks better than the cafeteria 
staff? The caf tries to please us. 

Everyone complains about the 
bad things on this campus as a 
means of venting frustrations 
and also as a means of trying to 
improve bad situations. The 
condition of the SUB is a good 
example. We complain about its 
appearance, rather than 
acknowledge all the im- 
provements which have been 
introduced. Also, who do you 
think poked holes in the columns 
and in the ceilings, wrote on the 
walls, messed up the pool tables, 
broke the pool cues, etc.— 

So let's start being positive 
about Centenary. It's our 
college; we should be proud of it, 
and we shouldn't be afraid to 
voice our opinions in its 
newspaper, The Conglomerate.

Dear Editors, 

I am writing on the behalf of 
several Centenary students to 
express our combined opinions 
concerning the amount of 
political articles printed in the 
Conglomerate. We feel that a 
weekly college paper should 
concentrate on college news and 
concerns, not world affairs. 

We do not, however, believe the 
newspaper should totally ignore 
national and international news. 
Since the Conglomerate is a 
weekly paper the national news 
published is often outdated. Why 
don't you run a current events 
box that would summarize recent 
world affairs? 

We also think that the rest of 
the paper has improved 
tremendously. Keep up the goot 1

"All things must pass" so 
someone said. "To everything 
there is a season," goes another 
sage observation upon the 
merciless passage of time. 

People realized in 1935 that, 
although Roosevelt's New Deal 
was a shot in the arm to a 
depressed U.S. economy, the 
agencies and alphabet 
organizations should be phased 
out when their time of usefulness 
had elapsed. The same is being 
said of social security, welfare, 
and the family-oriented society. 
But I am digging too deeply into 
the situation at hand. 

I want to talk about another 
great American institution whose 
time has come, according to 
some. The Centenary College 
Homecoming game. Obsolete?! 
Maybe so. 

The very name "home- 
coming" implies that this game 
is held for graduates to return 
home — to Centenary. The 
alumnae play an important role 
in the success of Homecoming 

However, alumnae attendance 
at the Homecoming functions has 
dropped to nearly fatal numbers. 
In fact, according to Dr. Webb, 
though invitations to the 

Alumnae Homecoming 
festivities, along with cut-rate 
tickets were sent to Centenary 
grads, 28 alumni were present. 
This response to the whole idea of 
Homecoming has been 
discouraging to all planners 

But Hr/mecoTfiing is for the 
stufaents, too. The "big game," 
4 ine corsages, court and 
iVoinecoming Queen. Why, 
without the Victory Dance for the 
Homecoming game college 
would be, well... un-American. 

So what shall we do to save 
Homecoming traditions from 
falling into obsolescence? Or 
should we try to save it at all, if 
its purpose is defeated by in- 
different alumnae? 

Student enthusiasm will an- 
swer the questions. If no 
homecoming is desired, the 
phase-out procedures will be 
fairly simple. But if the thought 
of college without a homecoming 
seems sacreligious, then get in 
there and support that cause. Let 
an alum know that the event is 
important and that he is 
homecoming's namesake. 

If it is to be a "homecoming," 
make them glad to come home. 

Youth apathy in America 

By Susan A. Scott 

Throughout the past few years 
the participation of young adults 
in the political arena has been on 
the decline. But who can blame 
today's student for not bothering 
to read Newsweek when the 
articles deal with such 
depressing topics as El Salvador, 
Lebanon, anti-American protests 
in West Germany and Great 
Britian, and the floundering U.S 
economy? It seems as though 
students have enough to worr 
about between making good 
grades and preparing for en- 
trance onto the job market. 

But after four marines have 
been killed and more than thirty 
wounded in Lebanon (U.S. News 
and World Report, Oct. 3, 1983, p. 
24), it is important that people 
our age take an interest in what's 
going on "over there." If the 
combat situation in Lebanon 
escalates, the 1500 marines 
already there will be joined by 
more reinforcements. And these 
reinforcements won't be 
"somebody else"; it will be you, 
me, or that guy that sits next to 
you in English class. How awful 
for America to be caught again in 
a situation like that which 

preceeded the Vietnam War, 
for granted. To think of it is 
really overwhelming: we 
students, with our new ideas and 
boundless enthusiasm, have the 
opportunity to steer the course 
for America, and yet most of ut 
sit idly by and forget our 
responsibility to the greatest 
nation on earth. Few students 
pass up the chance to determine 
how their student fees are spent 
here at Centenary College. Then 
how much more important are 
our thousands of tax dollars in 
the federal budget, which 
provides money for the nation in 
which we will be living out the 
rest of our lives! 

Voting, writing your 
congressman, staying informed, 
and working in political cam- 
paigns are four relatively easy 
ways to make your political 
feelings known. So the next time 
you start to complain about the 
present administration or try to 
ignore an overwhelming in- 
ternational conflict, just 
remember that on Nov. 4, 1980, 
when you elected to stay at home 
rather than go to the polls, you 
also discarded your right to 
charter the course for America 
for the next four years.. 

when no one really knew why we 
were going halfway across the 
world. And how equally un- 
fortunate for the nineteen year- 
old Richie Cunningham-type 
from Hometown, USA, if the first 
he hears of Sandinistas is from 
his battle front commander as 
they dig their foxhole in some 
forsaken South American jungle. 
In today's era of increasing 
worldwide interdependence, we 
must all become aware of the 
U.S. role in countries around the 

The people going to school here 
on the Centenary campus are the 
individuals who are going to be 
leading the nation in fifteen or 
twenty years. But the nationwide 
attitude of apathy among the IS 
to 24 voter age group puts the 
United States on a collision 
course with destruction. In the 
1980 national election a miniscule 
number of those voter registered 
in that age group actually voted 
This supports the premise that 
the young adults of this country 
are relinquishing their right to 
determine America's political 
policy. Only a handful of coun- 
tries around the world have the 
voting privileges that we 
Americans do, and we take them

Dr. McPherson and Leishmaniasis 

Dr. Brad McPherson, Head of 
Centenary's Biology Depart- 
ment, made himself a living 
target for Leishmaniasis, a skin 
disease that is plaguing Southern 
American countries. When he 
was a graduate student, KDr. 
McPherson traveled to Costa 
Rica to study the transmission of 
the disease. Since then, he has 
made seven more trips, the latest 
one being this summer. 

While in Costa Rica, Dr. Mc- 
Pherson worked in conjunction 
with Rodigo Zeledon, head of the 
School of Vetinary Medicine in 
Costa Rica and a team of Costa 
Rican natives. The bulk of their 
time was spent collecting insects 
that transmit the disease as well 
as the mammals that carry it. 
The parasite is transmitted by 

the Sand Fly, of which there are 
over one hundred species. Dr. 
McPherson and his crew risked 
infection by sitting outside at 
night when the flies bite. Each 
time a person was bitten, the fly 
was caught and placed in a 
labeled jar, to later be disected 
and investigated to see if it was 
a transmitter of Leishmaniases. 
Mucocutaneous wounds appear 
fourteen days after a mammal 
has been infected with the 
disease. The wound is an open 
ulcer from which body tissues 
ooze. The organism moves 
through the body causing lesions 
to appear on the skin surface. 
The wounds heal over a period of 
time, having been replaced by 
disfiguring scar tissue. The 
parasite can remain present in 

the body's system for as long as 
forty years. 

In his experimental study, Dr. 
McPherson has collected over 
1500 mammal specimens from 
Costa Rica which are kept in 
Mickle Hall. His extensive 
research led to the discovery of 
the first Brown Possum in Costa 
Rica. At this point, Dr. Mc- 
Pherson is preparing a short 
paper on the mammal, and when 
it is completed, he will send the 
report along with the mounted 
specimen back to Costa Rica to 
be put on display in the National 
Museum. Presently, Dr. Mc- 
Pherson is also working on a 
monograph of Costa Rican 
rodents to be published in a 
journal at the National Museum 
in Costa Rica.

The UJS.'s Central American dilemma 

Recently American public 
attention has been focused 
heavily on American in 
volvement in Central America. 
The memories of Vietnam and its 
catostrophic results still linger ir, 
the hearts and minds of the 
American people. The uncanny 
similarities between the 
beginnings of Vietnam and the 
present activities in Central 
America are frightening. 
However it is vitally important 
that the facts be presented and 
that it be made known of the 
necessity for American attention 
to this area. 

Since the early days of the 
Monroe Doctrine and the 
presidency of Theodore 
Roosevelt, the United States has 
made an irreversible com- 
mitment to Central and South 
America. This commitment is an 
extension of what the U.S. has 

called its National Security and 
the defense of the Western 
Hemisphere for democracy. It is 
true that the U.S. has intervened 
in many Latin American nation's 
affairs to preserve democracy 
but let us look a little closer. Over 
the past four years the U.S. has, 
in name or action, supported the 
totalitarian regimes of 
Guatemala, El Salvador, 
Nicaragua, Panama, Chile, and 
Argentina, as was the case in 
Vietnam. As the Reagan ad- 
ministration is slowly learning, 
these nations do best when en- 
couraged strongly, yet not 
radically interfered with. True 
the Reagan administration has 
made the attempts to negotiate. 
However this was only the case 
after public opinion consistently 
criticized the increasing military 
involvement in Central America. 
To review this controversial

platform of American foreign 
policy, let us look closely at some 
recent developments in this area. 
In mid-July there was an in- 
creasing agitation on the Hon- 
duran-Nicaraguan border. This 
is still a very volatile area and 
remains a prime possibility for a 
full scale war; In early Augst the 
evidence of a full scale covert 
war, initiated by the CIA, against 
the Sandinista government of 
Nicaragua, was revealed. It was 
at this time that President 
Reagan made the attempt to 
recover his failing foreign policy 
by establishing a commission or 
Central America; headed by the ' 
illustrious Henry Kissinger. Alsc 
initiated in mid-August was BIG 
PINE II (military maneuvres in 
Honduras). In early September, 
the largest naval exercises ever 
performed in the area of South 
America were begun. For- 
tunately in late August, some 
good news came from Central 
America: Presidential Envoy 
Richard Sonte successfully met 
with El Salvadoran rebels and 
the leftest regime in Nicaragua.

Recently there has been more 
talk of further meetings in the 
hope of settling this problem 
through peaceful negotiations. It 
is not certain as to how many 
positive results will develop from 
this, but it is mutually agreed 
that this is a step in the right 

It is truly interesting to see the 
U.S. walk carefully along two 
different approaches to this in- 
ternational crisis. The Reagan 
administration is to be com- 
mended for its efforts to 
negotiate. It has had some very 
remarkable results! Hopefully 
these results will prove as 
promising as has been predicted. 
Since Richard Stone's visit to El 
Salvadore in late August the 
Sandinista Government of 
Nicaragua for the first time has 
expressed an interest in 
negotiations for a peaceful 
solution to the area's problems; 
as well as has the Castro 
government in Cuba. The rebels 
in El Salvadore have agreed to 
negotiations and participation in 
new elections if the government 




will agree to a power — sharing 
coalition government; the El 
Salvadoran elitist right-wing has 
grown more and more open to the 
idea of negotiations for the sake 
of peace; the Contadora Group 
(Mexico, Venezuela, Panama 
and Columbia) has increased its 
interest to participate (only after 
the Reagan administration 
agreed \6 accept it). These 
positive steps made in the area, 
initiated by Richard Stone's trip, 
promise a possibility for a 
temporary peace in the future! 

However the Reagan Ad- 
ministration has not eased its 
military pressure in the area. On 
the contrary, it has increased its 
"Show of Force." The U.S., while 
holding the olive branch, of 
peace, also maintains its "Big 
Stick" policy in full view. With a 
3000-4000 man force in Honduras 
(for the BIG PINE II exercises) a 
19 ship naval flotilla (including 
the aircraft carriers Coral Sea 
and Ranger, as well as the bat- 
tleship New Jersey), an increase 
of 50 advisors in El Salvadore and 
300 in Honduras (also for BIG 
PINE II), the U. S. has 
reasserted its military presence 
in this area of political turmoil. 
Many questions this almost 
hypocritical form of foreign 
policy. However, just as many, 
claim that this is necessary to 
promote the interests of 
democracy and peace (not 
necessarily synonomous with 
each other(. 

It is certainly the hope of this 
reporter, that the Reagan ad- 
ministration proceeds with great 
caution and an extreme amount 
of care.

Dave Treen 

Treen victor 
in student poll 

By Donald Truitt 

A number of Centenary 
students were surveyed during 
the past week concerning 
Louisiana's upcoming guber- 
natorial election to be held on 
October 22. When asked the 
question, "If the election for 
governor was held today, who 
would you be more likely to vote 
for?", the students replied as 

Governor Dave Treen 52 percent 
Edwin Edwards 25 percent 

Undecided 23 percent 

Republican Dave Treen was 
the easy winner with more than a 
2 to 1 margin of victory. Many 
people said they favored honesty 
and integrity in the governor's 
mansion and they didn't feel that 
former Governor Edwards 
possessed either of these 

Governor Dave Treen seeks re-election in the upcoming election. 

Administration spending for education has increased 
more than $640 million, a 40 percent jump. Teachers 
have gained raises averaging $2,000 a year for taking 
refresher courses to improve their skills. A commission 
of teachers has been established to ensure a high level 
of professionalism in our schools. 

BUSINESS AND LABOR. In Treen's first three 
years more than 33,000 permanent jobs and more than 
62,000 construction jobs were created through the 
efforts of his Department of Commerce, a 27 percent 
gain over the previous three years. A unique Enterprise 
Zone Act attracts jobs to the most economically 
depressed areas. And an Emergency Tax Relief Act 
helps save businesses. 

WAR ON CRIME. Treen has ended the wholesale 
pardoning of criminals which, in the old days, let scores 
of murderers and rapists back on the streets before their 
time was served. He has provided for 'faster trials and

It's for us! 

By Darren D. Daigle 

The Coffeehouse is maturing. 
This semester has already seen 
the acquisition of a new flooor, a 
new Coke dispenser, a wider 
variety of sandwiches and other 
munchies, and now, coming at 
you in "sexophonic" sound, 

For those of you still living in 
the caves of darkness, MTV 
(Music Television abbreviated) 
is a cable channel dedicated only 
to music, primarily rock music<. 
Video Jockeys talk and interview 
rock stars as well as providing us 
with the latest news on the music 
industry, and keeping viewers 
updated on concerts around the 

United States (and sometimes 
outside the U.S.). In between the 
V. J. loquacity, taking up major 
portions of the air time, are 
visual presentations of the latest 
hits by rock artists. Innovative- 
and really creative, these video 
tapes are sometimes fascinating 
to watch while the accompanying 
song prods you to tap your feet or 
gyrate to the beat. 

The MTV channel was installed 
about three weeks ago to make 
the Coffeehouse more attractive 
to Centenary students. 

"My goal is to make the Cof- 
feehouse have what the people 
want," explains Brad Lyon, the 
Coffeehouse manager. "And 

judging from the number of 
people who've been coming in 
and watching MTV, I think it's 
safe to say that getting MTV was 
a good idea." 

A stereo connection came a 
week after the MTV installation 
and was soon followed by the 
mounting and connecting of four 
new speakers juxapositioning 
with the two already in use. The 
result? A stereo "sexophonic" 
barrage reverberating the music 
of Duran Duran, David Bowie, 
Michael Jackson, The Rolling 
Stones, The Who, Pat Benatar, 
The Police... ad infinitum. 

And it is all for us, Centenary 
students. Shag out to the Cof- 
feehouse and if you have any 
suggestions or ideas for im- 
provement, voice them. Says 
Brad: "If the people want it, 
we'll get it."

"The Big Chill 



(3V 2 stars) 

"The Big Chill" is a movie 
about the lost ideals and dreams 
of seven people, who were friends 
during college. An ensemble 
movie, "The Big Chill," features 
John Hurt, Kevin Kline, Jeff 
Goldblum, Mary Kay Place, 
Jobeth Williams, and Glenn 
Close, but none can claim to be 
the star of the show. 

"The Big Chill" is the story of 
seven friends who attended the 
University of Wisconsin together 
in the late 1960's. The movie 
takes place 15 years later, when 

the group is reunited by the 
funeral of Alex, one of the group 
during college, who has com- 
mitted suicide. The group meet 
at the 'Beaufort, South Carolina, 
home of two of the group, who are 
now married. During college, 
Alex was their social conscience, 
and in his death, they begin to 
examine their lives and compare 
them with the goals they set for 
themselves as young idealists. 
"The Big Chill" is, in my 
opinion, an excellent movie and 
one which deserves high critical 

Around Town 

By Tina Hackett 
Larry Morse 

It's another Sunday night and 
as usual there is the ever oc- 
curring dilema of where to go and 
eat. Since money is also an issue 
here, it has been broken down fo 
two choices; McDonalds or 
Burger King. 

We took a short survey while 
waiting in James Lobby to help in 
our decision. People were more 
than anxious to contribute to this 
assignment. One of the lucky 
persons we stopped was Suzi 
Corley. Suzi likes McDonalds 
because "it simply tastes bet- 
ter." Another bystander was 
quick to answer back with "yes, 
more generic maybe!" The next 
lucky soul was none other than all 
natural girl, Laurie Sanford. She 
likes Burger King because of the 
freshest ingredients like the 
lettuce and tomatoes. 

Another contribution was made 

by Wynne Burton. Wynne simply 
could not decide. Ann Beaty 
Quickly spoke up for Wynne 
saying to her, "You have to like 
Burger King because I have 
stock in it." Linda Baker was 
more serious in her response, she 
enjoys dining out at McDonald's 
because "it tastes better and I 
really go for that fast service and 
the smiles on the faces of the 
employees." Her "roomie", 
Eudora Kent didn't like Linda's 
comments at all. Miss Kent says 
that "McDonald's burgers taste 
gross and they have onions all 
over, at Burger King I can have it 
my way." William Lewis popped 
in saying that he liked those 
"little fried chicken things at 

Well, these two reporters left 
the caotic scene and thought, 
"McDonald's or Burger King? 
That is the question!" Our an- 
swer... Wendy's, of course!!!

Thursday, October 6, 1983— THE CONGLOMERATE— Page 7 

By Carole Powell 

There are many possibilities 
for students seeking part-time 
employment. Some students 
choose working in an eatery or a 
bar. Some may choose an on- 
campus job. Centenary Senior 
Warren Morales assists the 

Actually, Warren assists 
everyone at Rose-Neath Funeral 
Home, where he has been happily 
employed since July. Among his 
duties are directing the family 
and others present at a funeral, 
driving the family or pallbearers 
to the cemetery, and running 
errands to the newspaper office 
and to the coroner's office, as 
well as assisting with the bodies. 

Part of Warren's job is waiting 
on the "first call." The first call, 
the funeral home's first dealing 
with the deceased, is the 
notification coming from the 
family, nursing home, morgue, 
or police that a body needs to be 
picked up. Rose-Neath then 
dispatches a coach equipped with 

a stretcher to bring in the body. 
Warren answered a first call 
during his first day at work. 

Although it is unusual for 
anyone who is not an apprentice 
to the embalmer to work with the 
bodies, Warren finds assisting in 
the process of preparing the 
corpse interesting and volunteers 
to help the mortician whenever 
he is not busy elsewhere. Don- 
ning a smock and rubber gloves, 
he hands the mortician in- 
struments and cuts stitching 
string. "The embalmers think of 
me as an apprentice," Warren 
beamed proudly. 

There is more to the 
preparation than most realize. 
After the body is embalmed, it is 
taken to the cosmetic room 
where it is dressed and made-up 
to look as near to its natural color 
as possible. Last minute checks* 
are made, such as making cer- 
tain that the fingernails are clean 
and the clothes are straight, and 
the corpse is placed in a casket. 

Warren considers himself 
lucky to have gotten this job. 


Rose-Neath was hesitant to hire a 
Centenary student since most of 
them that they have hired in the 
past have quit after a month or so 
because of their inability to deal 
with the psychological aspects of 
the funeral business. 

"I enjoy working the job. The 
people I work with are friendly 
and have a good sense of humor. I 
guess theyd have to in this 
business," he said. 

Warren, who plans to graduate 
in the fall of 1984 and pursue his 
M.B.A., feels that his being a 
horror fan contributes to his 
ability to function well in his job. 
"Most people don't get scared at 
movies but do when faced with 
the reality of death," he com- 
mented. "I'm just the opposite. 
Death is reality. It's nothing to 
get scared about." 

Warren's job has helped him to 
accept the reality of death. "I've 
seen some unsightly things. We 
get a lot of cancer victims. I know 
they suffered, and are more 
peaceful in death... death is a part 
of life, it's peaceful." 

"Life is a state of existence. 
Death is a state of non-

Gents vs Bulldogs | 

The Centenary Gents Baseball 
team was on the road Thursday, 
September 29, to Ruston, where 
they played a twelve inning game 
against the Louisiana Tech 

Centenary jumped out early to 
take a one run lead on the 
Bulldogs in the first inning. Troy 
Wasko doubled into the left 
center-field's gap and scored two 
batters later when Eddie Crone 
delivered a run scoring double. 

The Gents came alive in the fifth 
inning scoring three runs. Lewis 
Parker led off the inning with a 
double. Third baseman Mike 
Greene brought Parker home by 
hitting a single. Greene then stole 
second and Troy Wasko followed 
with a walk. 

Eddie Crone delivered a single 
to center-field for two more Gent 
runs and his third RBI on the 
game. The Gents final run came 
in the sixth inning when Tony 

Tafoya walked, reached second 
and scored on Greene's single. 
Centenary rallied for three 
runs in the seventh inning. Wasko 
reached on a walk and Goldman 
reached on a fielders choice. 
With two runs on base, and two 
outs, Randy Williams drove a 
three run homerun over the right 
field fence, his second homerun 
of the year. The Gents scored 
again in the eighth when Troy 
Wasko drove in Darrell Storey 

who had led off the inning with a 
single. Their final two runs camq 
in the twelveth inning as they 
added four more hits to their 
attack. The final outcome was 
the Gents over the Bulldogs 11-10,

The PEP Committee: More than spirited 

Tom Ufert 

I'm sure the upperclassmen 
notice that every year, during the 
first semester, all freshmen look 
like Cheshire Cats. Our smiles are 
sometimes only big masks to hide 
our insecurity of being in a 
strange atmosphere. However, 
like all cats we are extremely 
curious about our new 
surroundings. I must admit that 
this curiosity is dangerous and 
can lead to a great deal of 
trouble. However, some very 
important questions were 
unanswered. For example, who 
runs this school? When I asked 
this small unimportant question, 
the first "Power" group that was 
mentioned was the "PEP" 
Committee. It is true that they 
didn't mean that this committee 
ran the school but it did play an 
important role in the ad- 
ministration of Centenary. 
Now at first this committee 

sounded like a spirit organization 
made up of school leaders, 
cheerleaders, alumni, etc... (You 
know, like your local high school 
Booster Club). Its name, 
however, hides its truly 
necessary purpose. When I 
questioned further about this 
committee, it was suggested that 
I do my own research and find 
out for myself. So I agreed ! I first 
asked various students on 
campus, what the "PEP" 
committee was. The answers I 
received were interesting as was 
the picture that was forming in 
my imagination. I pictured, from 
the opinions I had gathered, a 
large, dark and musty room. The 
doors leading into the room were 
about 8 feet tall and made of solid 
oak. During the secret conclaves 
held inside this executive con- 
ference room, the doors were 
bolted and guarded by armed 
guards who were escorted by 
Doberman Pinchers. Inside, 
there was an atmosphere similar 

to that of the atmosphere in the 
Cistene Chapel when the pope is 
elected. Seated at the 12-foot-long 
redwood conference table were 
the six voting members of the 
"PEP" committee. The room's 
windows were closed and the 
room was filled with cigarette 
smoke and reminded one of the 
atmospheric conditions in a pool 
hall. I further imagined that 
these "PEP" people wielded the 
awesome amount of power that 
runs this school and decides 
what's what! But you know what? 

The letters PEP stand for 
POLICY. This committee is 
basically the voice of the faculty 
on personel and economic 
policies. Composed of six faculty 
members it reviews all proposals 
and suggestions relating to the 
school economics such as the 
various department budgets. It 
also reviews all appointments, 
promotions, tenures, etc. . . 

conceding the college personnel. 
The members of this committee 
meet once a week on a regular 
basis and discuss the various 
situations or proposals that have 
arisen. This is the only com- 
mittee where the members are 
elected. Each year two seats are 
open for election. It is similar in 
practice to that of the 1-3 term 
sequence of the Senate. The seats 
are three year terms and 
represent the three sections of 
the faculty; Social Sciences, 
Humanities, and Natural 
Sciences. This arrangement was 
not intentional but over the years 
this is the way it has developed. 
This years' members are: Dr. 
Earle Labor (chairman); Dr. 
Vickie Gottlab, Prof. Michael 
Hall (all from the Humanities); 
Dr. Jeff Trahan, Dr. Rosemary 
Seidler (both from the Natural 
Sciences) and Dr. Lewis Bet- 
tinger (from the Social Scien- 
ces). The committee's ex -officio 
member, Dean Dorothy Gwin, is 

its administrative advisor. 

Because of the very delicate 
economic and personel matters 
discussed, the committee's 
meetings are closed to the 
general public. However, if one 
wished to meet with the com- 
mittee for some specific purpose 
or to personally present an idea 
or proposal, the committee will 
be most happy to add some extra 
time to its busy agenda. I wish to 
emphasize that this faculty 
committee is essential and most 
important to the administrative 
sect of Centenary. It serves a 
unique purpose and provides for 
a direct faculty voice on school 
policies. (I wish to thank 
Professor Michael Hall for his 
valuable aid). 

P. S. I wish to emphasize that the 
beginning of this article was an 
attempt to make it more in- 
teresting to read by using a 
humorous interpretation. 

Typing Room available soon 

How many times have you had 
to frantically hunt through the 
dorm to find a typewriter in order 
to complete an assignment? Or, 
how many times have you been 
disturbed while you've been 
sleeping or studying by the tap- 
tap-tap of your neighbor's 

Well, the Student Government 
Association is doing something 
about these situations and ones 
similar to them. By the beginning 
of November, the library will be 
equipped with a new typing 

Acting on a suggestion by SGA 
Senator Bob Thomas, the SGA 
has been discussing the matter of 
converting one of the study 
rooms on the second floor of the 
library into a typing room. Plans 
for having the new typing room 
Sv jd proofed are underway but 
no date for the actual con- 
struction has been set. However, 
two IBM "Selectric" typewriters 
should be installed by the first of 

The SGA is still a little hazy on 
the procedures a student will 
have to go through to use a 

typewriter, but hopefully things 
will be worked more defined once 
the typewriters arrive. The 
typing rooms may be kept 
unlocked during library hours, or 
a student may need to obtain a 
key from the front desk of the 
library in order to use a 
typewriter. Also, the idea of 
being able to reserve time to use 
a typewriter in advance has 
appealled to many students. This 
would eliminate two people 
planning to use the same 
typewriter at the same time. The 
system of reserving a typewriter 

will probably be similar to the 
one used in the Computer Lab. 
Another matter which is still 
being questioned is the cost and 
payment of the typewriter rib- 
bons. A small fee may be charged 
for the use of the typing room in 
order to cover the cost of the 
ribbons, however the SGA is 
looking into the possibility of 
budgeting some money for this 
purpose. Since the SGA has no 
idea as to how much ribbons will 
be used each year, it will be 
difficult to project a budget for 
the ribbons. 

Bob Thomas, heading the 
committee, is still ironing out 
many of these small details, and 
of course things will be running 
smoothly when the typewriters 
become available for student 

Many other schools already 
have typing rooms available for 
students, and Thomas is looking 
into how they have been handling 
the use of the rooms. If you have 
any suggestions or ideas that can 
help the SGA with the new typing 
rooms, contact Bob Thomas or 
any other SGA member.

I want to take this opportunity

who helped make the dedication 
of the Hodges Rose Garden such 
a success I believe that it was a 
tine event enjoyed by the College 
la truly and our many friends. It 
reconfirms what I've said for 
some time: that there is a "pride 
<>i place" here.

Dear Editor, 

I was very disappointed by the 
meager turnout at the "Trout 
Fishing in America" concert last 
Friday afternoon. There must 
have been less than fifty people 
there at any given time. Come on, 
people, these folks came all the 
way from Houston to play for us ! 
They've cut a very popular 
album! And they play at the 
Rusty Nail practically all the 
time! They've even been asked to 
go to Canada for the Red River 
Revel next year! They deserve so 
much more support than was 
given them this past week. They 
are playing again in the shell this 
Friday, October 14 from 5-7 p.m. 
Let's see if we can do better, 
O.K.? We're lucky they're giving 
us another chance.

Senate Minutes 

In i-nminemovjtioii ol (In- Hodges Kose Garden... 

by Clay Robinson 

(This represents a reporting of 
the Senate meeting of October 11, 
1983, and should not be con- 
sidered the official minutes of the 

The October 11 meeting of the 
Student Senate was called to 
order by President Thurndotte 
Baughman at 11:17 a.m. The 
previous meeting's minutes were 
approved with corrections and 
there were no officer reports. 

Tuesday, the Senate heard 
from the standing committees on 
Entertainment, Elections and 
Forums. Entertainment Com- 
mittee Chairman Michael Hayes 
reported that Fall Ball would cost 
about $3500 and that the S.G.A.'s 
cook-out would be on Sunday, 
October 16. Carole Powell of the 
Forums Committee spoke to the 
Senate about several possible 
Forums' speakers for the fall and 
spring semesters. The Elections 
Committee presented an addition 
to the elections by-laws, con- 
cerning who could be elected to 
the Fall Ball Homecoming Court. 

In the first of its monthly media 
sessions, the Senate heard from 
The Yoncopin and The 
Conglomerate. Yoncopin editor 
Dawn Calhoun announced that 
the yearbook is ahead and asked 
the Senate for suggestions as to 

how to get local businesses that 
receive student patronage to 
advertise in The Youncopin. 
Conglomerate co-editor Clay 
Robertson announed that The 
Conglomerate had registered a 
profit of $398.31 for the month of 
September. President Baughman 
then announced that Clay 
Robertson had tendered his 
resignation for health reasons 
effective 12:00 p.m., October 11. 

The hottest topic discussed by 
the Senate Tuesday was once 
again Homecoming. The Senate 
set December 3, 1983, as the date 
for Homecoming, because that 
date represented the only 
Saturday night game. Senator 
Bob Thomas brought to the 
Senate the proposal -of having 
students contact hometown 
aflumni and alumni in related 
fields about attending 
Homecoming. A motion regar- 
ding the matter was brought by 
Senator Susan Scott and the Scott 
motion was passed in a close 
vote, with Vice President Alyce 
Boudreaux leading the opposition 
to the motion. 

Tuesday, the Senate also ap- 
proved the donation of $50 to start 
a memorial fund in honor of 
Bishop J. Kenneth Shamblin at 
Centenary College. 

The meeting of October 11 was 
adjourned at 12:17 p.m.

Words from Wonderland

"Hi! I'm Martha Quinn, 
resident airhead, and this is 

"Good evening. I'm Nina 
Blackwood and I'm going to 
make a musical fool of myself, 
here, on MTV." 

"Hey there! I'm J. J. Jackson, 
the overweight guy in the tight 
leather pants and this is MTV." 

"Hello. I'm too cute for words 
and I'm equally cocky. That's 
right, I'm Mark Goodman, MTV 
VJ extrordinaire." 

"Good morning. You're wat- 
ching MTV and me, Alan Hunter. 
I'm hyperactive and probably 

If all these people seem 
familiar to you, you've probably 
been watching MTV, Music 
Television. MTV is a radio 
station with pictures. Sounds 
neat, huh? Just think, you get to 
SEE all those rock stars lip- 
synch their hit songs! You can 
also find out what's new in 

"Music News." Best of all, those 
lovable VJ's (Video Jockeys) 
keep you informed or rock and 
roll anniversaries such as David 
Bowie's birthday. Paul Mc- 
Cartney's wedding anniversary, 
and the day that Pete Townshend 
finally dried out. 

MTV's programming has 
changed greatly since its debut 
two years ago. They've changed 
from a progressive format (XTC, 
Psychedelic Furs, etc.) to one 
that is almost bubblegum. I 
expect to see Leif Garret and 
Shaun Cassidy on the small 
musical screen any day. 

It seems as if someone at MTV 
is into leather: not thirty minutes 
go by before some heavy metal 
band comes on dressed in leather 
from head to sadomasochistic 
toe. Yeah, it looks neat, but what 
about all those naked cows? 

MTV also has contests that are 
fit for a rock 'n' roll king. The 
latest in this series is a trip to 
Tokyo to see Asia. "Asia in 
Asia," they call it. What about 
"Berlin in Berlin" or "Boston in 

Boston"? Better yet, "Men at 

Work on 1-20." 

In addition to trips, there are 
supplementary prizes that have 
been given away, such as: 
platinum albums belonging to 
Men at Work, Pete Townshend's 
guiter, and dinner with Fleet- 
wood Mac. Why don't they give 
away some really interesting 
items? How about Boy George's 
makeup or an appointment with 
Adam Ant's tailor? Hey! Why 
don't they give away a WHOLE 
BAND? Who wouldn't want to 
have the Stones in her basement? 
How about a date with Ozzy 
Osbourne? It could be a dinner 
date with raw bat a la mode for 
dessert. (Only kidding, Ozzy, I 
love you so much I could just bite 
your head off).

"On two. Ready? Break!" 

Seven players take their 
position and wait tensely for the 
snap. Nobody giggles; nobody 
checks her hair ribbon. 

As evidenced by their changing 
attitude toward intramural 
football— their setting aside time 
for practice and their taking the 
field with increasing deter- 
mination—many women are 
beginning to take sports 
seriously. Now, not only do they 
want to play, they want to win. 
For many, it is no longer enough 
to participate. They want to 

These new competitors are not 
jocks. These are the girls for 
whom the most challenging sport 
of their childhood was hopscotch. 
They are the transition 
generation. Although beginning 
their life in a society in which a 
lady didn't sweat, they now find 
themselves in a society which has 
finally come to accept that sports 
will make a girl neither knotty 
with muscles nor homosexual. 
Their daughters may well begin 
learning to play soccer and 
basketball in kindergarten. 

These women, however, are 
only beginning to be convinced of 
their ability to compete. In 
realizing their capabilities, they 
are faced with a problem of at- 
titude. Should one play to win? Is 
it acceptable to be competitive? 
(It was much easier to be passive 
when one didn't think one could 
win anyway). 

Does a competitive spirit 
detract from a woman's 
femininity? Most would agree 
that a healthy competitive at- 
titude, one that challenges a 
woman to develop and sharpen 
her skills, both physical and 
mental, enhances one's 
character and in no way makes a 
woman less feminine. (Keep in 
mind, however, that poor 
sportsmanship is generally 
unattractive in either sex). 

It must be noted that there may 
be an occasional male who finds 
a competitive woman "butch." A 
man of this sort is probably the 
same man who would like to keep 
his "little woman" in the kitchen 
and in the bedroom, and any little 
woman who would be attracted to 
one of this breed (hopefully a 
dying one) is unlikely to be 
participating in sports anyway. 

All this is not to say that a 
woman must play to win. Those 
who play for the love of playing 
undoubtedly have a better time. 
However, a woman who 
Possesses a competitive spirit 
should press on toward her 
laurels without guilt. These days, 
football's not just for powder-

Dedication Speech read 

We fortunates, who have our beings here — 
quick years for students, quicker still, tho' more 
for us whose lucky stars assigned as staff — 
find that because of roses, life is new. 
You campus friends, whose visits honor it 
by loyalty, or philanthropic task, 
discover with us in this pleasant place 
a spot of fragrance, harmony and grace. 

To come here early, and to find it washed 

by night-time rain, or by the morning dew; 

to walk at midday, sit awhile, enjoy 

the pleasure of the cool ; or, then, to leave 

at evening when the air's perfumed: by such 

one knows one's being lifted clear across 

both "sleepy silver bayou" each reveres — 

and, brightly, through our campus days and years. 

And this would be enough; a garden filled 
with roses, where before, the grasses grew; 
quite masterly designed, and made, a gift 
most graciously endowed, in every sense. 
But there's much more; for as these voices sang, 
a rose can catch the meaning of a life, 
revealing beauty mind, not eye, perceives, 
describing truth the heart believes. 

"Lo, how a Rose" speaks more than of a bloom, 
but of a mother and her son, and what 
they meant for history. Well, roses here 
tell also of a mother, full of grace, 
and joy, and peacefulness; which she herself 
had learned from her own mother's hand. And both, 
with clear and gentle mother's touch, then cast a 
dynasty of service meant to last. 

Of this, the garden full of roses speaks. 

But more: this garden tells us of a son 

who with his lady, down the years have made 

a history for this place, sustaining it 

by countless quiet, strong and generous acts. 

We could not now be what we are, but that 

they led and served us, time and time again, 

and founded precedents we will maintain. 

We dedicate this garden out of love: 
the love those gentle alma maters drew 
in life and memory from all their kin; 
the love our ancient Alma Mater has 
drawn freshly from this servant-leader pair. 
But we, their friends, will always let it draw — 
as long as we shall walk upon this ground — 
a love for them that knows no end or bound.

Rose Garden 
Dedication Performed 

by Susan A. Scott 

Last Thursday, in a 5:15 
ceremony graced by the setting 
sun, Dr. Doug McGuire, a 
Methodist minister, offered the 
dedicatory prayer for the Hodges 
Rose Garden. The Centenary 
Choir and the Chamber Singers 
sang for the many guests who 
were served refreshments by the 
Maroon Jackets. 

The garden was financed by an 
endowment from Sarah and Bill 
James, members of the Board of 
Trustees, and was given in 
memory of Mr. James' mother 
and grandmother. 

The Hodges Rose Garden is 
composed of sixteen different 
varieties of vegetation. The most 
impressive of these flowers is the 
Centenary Rose, a new strain of 
rose created especially for the 
Hodges Rose Garden. This rose 
bush will soon be available for 
purchase by alums all over the 
nation. Other plants in the garden 
include the Pascale roses, crepe 
myrtle trees, Japanese 

magnolias, azaleas, flowering 
pear trees, and many others. 

The Hodges Rose Garden is the 
first step in a general 
beautification program for the 
College. The footpath lighting 
system will soon be found all over 
the campus, including along the 
walk up to the Marjorie Lyons

The Wide World of Jack London 

Is it really true that Jack 
London is considered by some 
critics to be America's greatest 

Don't most critics consider him 
to be a second-rate, outdated 
writer of rough-and-tumble 
adventure stories and dog stories 
for children? 

"Yes" is the answer to both 

Yes, some European critics 
consider Jack London to be 
America's greatest author. (If 
you don't believe it, check the 
newspaper article in the display 
case on the west wall of the foyer 
in Magale Library.) 

And yes, until very recently 
most American critics have been 
satisfied to dismiss him as a 
popular hack or, worse, to ignore 
him altogether. 

But, as we know, critics are by 
nature and profession a bit 
snobbish. They are also 
notoriously short-sighted (it took 
them more than seventy years to 
decide that Herman Melville was 
something more than a writer of 
South Seas romances and that 
Moby-Dick was something better 
than a metaphysical mishmash — 
and took them almost as long to 
realize that Poe was something 
better than an alcoholic drug 
addict who wrote some weird 
horror stories while probably 
smoking something stronger 
than grass). 

So, despite the fact that London 
continued to be read by the 
common reader both at home and 
abroad for more than two 
generations, it has been only 
during the past few years that 
our critics have grudgingly 
begun to acknowledge his 
existence. He is still barely 
taught on the college level, but 
heretofore he was not taught at 
all— so we're making some 
progress. In fact, we're making 
great progress. 

The new Dictionary of Literary 
Biography has granted him 
major status, alongside Mark 
Twain and Henry James (check 
the display case on the south wall 
of the Library foyer). Moreover, 
during the past year or so, at 
least two major scholarly books 

on London have been published 
by distinguished university 
presses (you will find them in 
that same display case), and a 
half-dozen important volumes 
have been released by the 
commercial presses (including 
the new Library of America 
Classics Series, distributed by 
Viking Press and Times Life 
Books) all dealing with London. 
By the time your own children 
are in college, I predict that Jack 
London will be taught throughout 
the country alongside such 
cherished souls as Hawthorne, 
Twain, Hemingway, and 
Faulkner. In the meantime you 
might like to know a little more 
about this fascinating author: 
Here are some highlights: 
His career is a paradigm at the 
American Myth of Success. He 
was born illegitimate and spent 
most of his youth in near-poverty, 
quitting school to go to work full 
time in a cannery when he 
finished the eighth grade. At 
fifteen he quit work to join the 
oyster pirates on San Francisco 
Bay. At seventeen he shipped 
aboard a sealing schooner as an 
able-bodied seaman. Later that 
year, when he returned home 
from his voyage, he won first 
prize (over students from 
Stanford and UC-Berkeley) in a 
writing contest sponsored by the 
San Francisco Call (the title of 
his prize-winning sketch was 
"Story of a Typhoon Off the Coast 
of Japan"). The next year he 
hoboed across the continent and, 
after being arrested for vagrancy 
in Niagara, spent thirty days in 
the Erie County Penitentiary. 
Shocked by what he saw there, he 
returned home in the fall of 1894 
and entered high school, 
graduating in a year and a half; 
then crammed and passed the 
entrance examinations for the 
University of California, where 
he spent a semester. In the 
summer of 1897 he joined the 
Great Klondike Gold Rush and 
spent a year in the Northland, 
absorbing the atmosphere and 
the real-life adventure tales he 
would transmute into great 
fiction after returning home. In 
the fall of 1898 he began his

writing career in earnest, 
working furiously (sometimes 
sixteen hours a day at the 
typewriter) in his attempt to 
break into the literary 
marketplace. Though he 
received numerous rejections 
(more than 600 during the first 
five years of his career), he 
finally managed to break into 
print in the famous Overland 
Monthly and in 1899 got an ac- 
ceptance for his story "An 
Odyssey of the North" by the 
prestigious Atlantic Monthly. 
When his first book, The Son of 
the Wolf, was published by 
Houghton Mifflin the next year, 
he became a success almost 
overnight. Three years af- 
terward he won international 
acclaim with his great classic 
The Call of the Wild. With the 
appearance of another best- 
seller, The Sea-Wolf, in 1904, he 
became one of America's most 
highly paid authors. 

London's success continued to 
grow over the next decade as he 
produced some half-hundred 
books, 200 short stories, and more 
than 400 non-fiction pieces. When 
he died from a cerebral stroke at 
the age of forty, the news of his 
death received more space in the 
newspapers than that of the 
Emperor Franz Josef of Austria, 
who had died the day before. 

But Jack London was far more 
than a successful writer. From 
all reports he was a man of 
surpassing vitality and charm — 
utterly unpretentious and 
unaffected by his great success. 
He loved people, and he loved 
excitement. He often said in his 
later years that the great miracle 
of his life was that he lived to be 
twenty-one— since most of his 
early chums had wound up either 
dead or in prison. He built and 
sailed his own ship (a forty-foot 
ketch called The Snark) halfway 
around the world. He pioneered 
as both a sports writer and a war 
correspondent. He was a first- 
rate swimmer and boxer (he said 
he would rather be a world 
champion prize-fighter than 
write the great American novel). 
In 1905 he left the city and moved 
into the Sonoma Valley sixty

Jack London, great American author 

miles north of San Francisco (the 
"Valley of the Moon") where he 
began restoring worn-out 
hillsides to build a model ranch. 
He succeeded in growing the best 
crops and the finest livestock in 
Northern California. He was also 
a crusading Socialist (first 
president of the Intercollegiate 
Socialist Party) and throughout 
his life a champion of the social 
underdog. Like Henry David 
Thoreau, he was the perfect 
nonconformist; but unlike 
Thoreau, he managed to make a 
million dollars (the first writer 
ever to do so). 

And notwithstanding his 
personal exploits, it is London's 
writing that has insured his 
permanency in our culture (and 
in cultures around the globe). In 
addition to his gripping tales of 
the wilderness, he wrote science 
fiction, novels of social protest, 
agrarian novels, a play (pre- 
Watergate) exposing the 
corruption in Washington 
politics, essays on such varied 
subjects as agronomy and ar- 
chitecture, and a handful of 
Hawaiian tales just before he 

died, into which he worked ar- 
chetypal elements he had 
discovered in the newly tran- 
slated works of Carl Jung. He 
was, in short, truly a writer as 
well as a man for all seasons. 

But come see for yourself. 

For the next couple of weeks 
the Magale library will house an 
extensive exhibit of Londoniana, 
including photographs of the 
writer from childhood into 
middle age, personal 

memorabilia from the London 
Ranch (including a bookrack and 
a can of brass tacks from Jack's 
own desk), and a representative 
selection of his literary works 
and color posters of his films. For 
a few minutes of browsing time 
you can get a glimpse of Jack 
London's wide world.

Thursday, October 13, 1983— THE CONGLOMERATE— Page 5 

Dee Love, Kerri Rivers, and Cynthia Hawkins discuss preparations in "The Dining Room." 

Lee Morgan, Malcolm Willis, and Todd Moore in a scene from "The 
Dining Room." 

The Dining Room 

by A. R. Gurney, Jr. 

brilliantly conceived and richly 
humorous theatrical tour de 
force (and long run off -Broadway 
success) in which six performers 
portray a wide array of diverse 
characters as they delineate the 
dying life-style of wealthy 
WASPdom, and the now 
neglected room which was once a 
vital center of family life. 

"...hilarious and touching. . .as 
comic sketch crazily succeeds 
comic sketch a whole pattern of 
American life emerges..." Clive 
Barnes, N. Y. POST. 

The play is set in the dining 
room of a typical well-to-do 
household, the place where the 
family assembled daily for 
breakfast and dinner and for any 
and all special occasions. The 
action is comprised of a mosaic 
of interrelated scenes - some 
funny, some touching, some 
rueful - which, taken together, 
create an in-depth portrait of a 
vanishing species: the upper 
middle class WASP. The actors 
change roles from little boys to 
stern grandfathers, and from 
Siggling teenage girls to Irish 
housemaids. Each vignette in- 
troduces a new set of people and 
events: a father lectures his son 
° n grammar and politics; a boy 
returns from boarding school to 
discover his mother's infidelity; 
a senile grandmother doesn't 
recognize her own sons at 
Christmas dinner; a daughter, 
her marriage a shambles, pleads 

futilely to return home, etc. 
Dovetailing swiftly and 
smoothly, the varied scenes 
coalesce, ultimately, into a 
theatrical experience of ex- 
ceptional range, compassionate 
humor and abundant humanity. 

The cast for the Centenary 
College Theatre Departments 
opening production, and their 
entry in the XVI American 
College Theatre Festival, has 
been selected by director Robert 
R. Buseick. 

The six actors performing the 
sixty characters in "THE 
DINING ROOM" will be Cynthia 
Hawkins, Deidre Love, Todd T. 
Moore, Lee Morgan, Kerri 
Rivers and Malcolm A. Wills. 
"The Dining Room" is a richly 
woven, imaginative, affectionate 
and often hilarious look at a 
vanishing breed - the American 
upper middle class. 

Miss Hawkins brings a wealth 
of experience to the stage with 
this assortment of characters in 
"The Dining Room." In the 
summer production of "The 
Heiress" she played Marion 
Almond. Cindy's performances 
as Sissy "Come Back to the 5 
and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy 
Dean," Miss Amelia in "Ballad 
of the Sad Cafe," the wife in 
"Rashomon," and Emily Bronte 
in "Masterpieces" have 
established her as one of the 
areas' most talented and 
promising actresses. Her roles in 
"Madame de Sade" as Renee de 
Sade and "My Sister In This 

House" as Christine brought 
Cindy two Irene Ryan Awards at 
The American College Theatre 
Festival. Cindy received her B.A. 
in Theatre last year from Cen- 
tenary, but has returned for a 
fifth year to work toward a 
teacher certification. 

Deidre Love is a sophomore 
theatre major from Halls ville, 
Texas making her first ap- 
pearance on the Marjorie Lyons 
stage. Prior to college Ms. Love 
played Beatrice in "The Effect of 
Gamma Rays on Man in the 
Moon Marigolds," Genny in 
"Bring Back Birdie," Ursula in 
"Bye Bye Birdie" and Mercy 
Lewis in "The Crucible." Dee is 
also a member of the newly 
formed dance company, 
"Escaped Images" at Centenary 

Todd Moore was last seen on 
the Playhouse stage as the oldest 
Snow son in the 1977 summer 
musical "Carousel." Since that 
time he has graduated from 
Southfield, attended Washington 
and Lee for two years, and is 
currently a senior English major 
at Centenary College. He has 
appeared previously in a 
Gaslight production. Last year 
Todd was the Editor of the 
Centenary College Yearbook, the 

A junior Theatre Major at 
Centenary Lee Morgan brings a 
varied theatre background to the 
many roles he will be playing in 
"The Dining Room." Lee has 
composed music for productions 

of "My Sister In This House" and 
been properties master for 
"Madame de Sade." For Peter 
Pan Players he played Dick in 
"Mary Poppins" and at Cen- 
tenary he's appeared in "The 
Ballad of the Sad Cafe," "No, No 
Nanette," "Medea," "As You 
Like It," "Rashmon," "Trixie 
True," "Teen Detective," and 
"Come Back to the 5 and Dime, 
Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean." 

Ms. Rivers was the Irish maid, 
Maria in the past summer 
production of "The Heiress" at 
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse and

What a week the SUB has had! 
The big news is the pool tables 
have finally been redone. I know 
it is throwing your game off a bit 
(they are at last level), but I feel 
they are a welcome relief from 
the condition they were 
previously in. The noon time 
crowd is growing everyday. We, 
at the Coffeehouse, would like to 
thank the Caf and their Monday 
lunch for this occura'nce (just 
kidding Dottie and Debbie). She 
turned the big 3-0 on October 3rd. 
While on the subject of the Caf, 
for all of you students who 
thought Mattie didn't have a 
heart, you should have seen her 
Tuesday at lunch. 

I am pleased to announce the 
addition of Sandra Sherrod and

Hayes for his hard work. 

I want to apologize for the 
change in dates and location of 
the "Healthy Cooking" course. 
Due to the Revel, John Koellen 
felt things would go smoother if 
we changed the dates. Don't

Well, Centenary has finally 
arrived to the world of musical 
entertainment!!! This past 
Friday, the shell came alive with 
the sounds of "Trout Fishing in 
America." This popular group is 
a regular at everyone's favorite, 
the Rusty Nail. 

Centenary students, faculty, 
and staff alike were all pleased 
with the show. One of the favorite 
numbers was "The Masocisim 
Tango." This was truly 
astonishing in its own rite! 

After the concert, Centenary 
folk were treated to Centenary 
night at the Rusty Nail. Anyone 
who held a Centenary I.D. card 
got in without cover charge for a 
terrific party with more music 
from "Trout Fishing... ." 

If you missed this fantastic 
evening, you can catch a repeat 
tomorrow in the shell, again at 
5:00 p.m. Come on along and join 
the fun after the concert at "the 
Nail," it promises to be another 
great party for all. 

Ed and Beth Leuck proudly hold their new son, NiCkolas Edwin Leuck,

Zeta Tan Alpha 

First of all, we would like to 
thank everyone who helped make 
the Zeta Meat Pie both the top 
selling booth of all the Greek 
concessions at the Revel. Thanks 
to the TKE's for the champagne 
swap last Friday. Toga Party 
was great as well. This week's 
Zeta Heisman trophy goes to 
Susan Beauboeuf for her fabulous 
touchdown. Congratulations to 
our newest pledge, Tracy Taylor! 
Happly birthday Donna 
Richardson. We are all looking 
forward to another fantastic 
Jungle Party. Glad you're better, 
Joey. Good luck to everyone on 
mid-terms; study hard! 


Well, this is definitely a week 
worth going to school for since we 
can top off a long hard week with 
our Saturday night celebration of 
Jungle Party. Moss crew 
nominations are still up in the air 
and will be decided this week. If 
you are on the invite list to Jungle 
Party, we will need $12.00 per 
couple for all the jungle juice you 
can consume, so please pay a KA 
by Friday afternoon. One sad 
note to acknowledge is the out- 
come of the KA-Sig pledge game. 
We think it was well played all 
the way up to the final and very 
controversial play. The darkness 
favored the referee's vision on 
this day! Needless to say, the KA 
pledge class is still tops in our 
books. Congratulations go out to 
Chris Edwards for helping 
Centenary's Rifle Team win their 
competition this past weekend. 
We would also like to 

congratulate John Lee and Jan 
Willie Van Der Berg who par- 
ticipated in the Gents soccer 
victory this past week. 

There will be no Thursday 
night party due to strenuous 
Jungle Party preparations. We 
want our dates to get plenty of 
rest this week, because you will 
definitely be up late Saturday. 
Girls, dress as bare as you dare 
because it might be chilly and 
there will be many a jungle 
animal on the loose! The band 
has already been in town to 
assure us of a very radical Jungle 
Party. We hope we all live to tell 
about it. The wobbily pen will 
return next week so stay tuned 
and well primed. Until then we 
say "Stitaya and good night"! 

Kappa Sigma 

For those of you who have 
waited patiently, yet anxiously, 
here it is, the first annual Kappa 
Sigma submission to Greek Beat, 
the fraternal forum of Centenary 
College, wherein those who crow 
loudest, usually eat crow — so let 
it be with Kappa Alpha. Yes, in 
answer to those afore mentioned, 
"We are, we did, and we always 
will." To those of you yet 
unaware, the Sig pledges 
defeated the KA pledges in a 
challenge football match this 
past Sunday. We'll all enjoy the 
keg of reeb, and in addition, Pat 
Downs sends his thanks to Jay 
Greenleaf for the additional case 
of reeb. Those responsible for the 
victory, our new pledges (and 
their respective Big Brothers) 
are: Jeff Goins; Ron Whitler; 
Hoppy Lewing, Scotty Caroom; 
Ian Webb, Mark Peeler; Tom 
Cochran, Barry Breit; Bill Ball;

When a number of Centenary 

students were asked the question, 

"Should Centenary have a 

Homecoming?", there was little 

disagreement. The breakdown 

was as follows: 

Yes 78 percent 

No 14 percent 

No Opinion 8 percent 

The main disagreement and 

uncertainty came when the 

students were asked who should 

be responsible for the 

preparations of the activity. The 

results to this question follow: 

Students 48 percent 

Faculty 43 percent 

No Opinion 9 percent 

No clear answer evolved from 
the survey concerning the latter 
question. Some students offered 
the suggestion that the senior 
class should be totally respon- 
sible for the activity, while others 
offered the suggestion that a 
committee consisting of mem- 
bers of each class, senate 
members, and faculty and ad- 
ministration representatives 
should plan and prepare the 
event. The debate concerning 
Centenary's Homecoming 
festivities continues. 

Absentee voting possible 

BATON ROUGE — Secretary 
of State Jim Brown said this 
week that students at Centenary 
still have time to vote absentee, 
provided that they are 

"If you're going to be home 
before Saturday, October 15, you 
can cast a ballot with the 
Registrar of Voters in the parish 
courthouse," Brown said. "If you 
have asked for a mail absentee 
ballot, it must be mailed back to 
arrive no later than Thursday, 
October 20." 

For those who are not 
registered, but wish to do so for 

the November 19 general elec- 
tion, the final day is Tuesday, 
October 25, Brown said. 

"I can't over-emphasize the 
importance of this election," 
Brown said. "We will be electing 
the state of finals and the 
members of the ragislature who 
will govern our lives in Louisiana 
for the next four years." 

Brown expects a fairly high 
percentage of the registered 
voters to go to the polls October 
22, and noted that registration 
figures in most parishes are at an 
all-time high.

East Texas Shootout 

The Gents soccer team took 
first place for the second con- 
secutive year in the East Texas 
Shootout. They were on the road 
October 7-8, to LeTourneau 
College where they participated 
in the two day tournament 
against St. Mary's and 
LeTourneau. Sweeping both 
games over the weekend they 
overtook St. Mary's, 3-0, and 
LeTourneau, 1-0. 

Centenary's first shutout was 
Friday. October 7, against St. 
Mary's. In the first half John 
Graham scored the first goal on 
an assis from Jay Poss. Poss 
then scored in the second half, 
assisted by Steve Sanguinetti. 
The third goal was unassisted by 
Jeff Foster. 

The second game of the East 
Texas Shootout was Saturday, 
October 8, against LeTourneau 
College The Gents" only goal was 
scored on a penalty kick by Doug 
Crone with his left foot to the 
right corner, beating LeTour- 

neau 1-0 for the championship. 

Mark Knepper demonstrated 
Centenary's defensive abilities 
with shutouts against both op- 
ponents, with an average of one 
goal or less per game. 

The Gents had four players 
named to the East Texas 
Shootout All-Tournament Team: 
Most Valuable Player - Mark 
Knepper, goalie; Scott Davidson 
- halfback; Doug Crone - mid- 
fielder; and Matt Cardillo - 

The Gents record of 5-5-0, five 
wins and five losses, will be 
tested this Friday, October 14, as 
they travel to Dallas, Texas, 
where they will play Southern 
Methodist University. SMU 
ranks high in the Midwest region 
with a record of 5-4-3, five wins- 
four losses-3 ties, against other

team traveled to Nachidoches 
Saturday, October 8, to take part

with a score of 97. First place 
went to Houston Baptist and 
second place to Louisiana Tech.

Julie Lesage 

Feminist, Film Critic To Speak At Centenary 

by Carole Powell 

Julia Lesage, feminist, 
professor of literature and film, 
and film critic and editor, will be 
on the Centenary campus Sun- 
day, October 30 to Wednesday, 
November 2. During this time, 
Lesage, who has spent much time 
in Nicaragua studying the role of 
women in the Nicaraguan 
revolution, will speak in lecture 
situations, as well as in the 

The following is an exerpt from 
a presentation made by Lesage 
at the conference "Marxism and 
the Interpretation of Culture: 
Limits, Frontiers, and Boun- 
daries," held at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
July 8-12, 1983. 

"...I bring up this example of 
Nicaragua, because Nicaraguan 
women are very conscious of the 
power of their own revolutionary 
example. They know they've 
been influenced by the Viet- 
namese and Cuban revolutions 
and are very much shaping how 
Salvadoran women militants are 
looking at women's role in the 
Salvadoran revolution. Because 
of the urgency and violence of the 
situation, unity between men and 
women was and is necessary for 
their survival, but the women 
also want to combat, in an 
organized and self-conscious 
way, specific aspects of male 
supremacy in the work place, 
politics, and daily life. 

Both here and in Nicaragua, 

women's daily conversation with 
each other often consists of 
complaints about men and about 
managing the domestic sphere. It 
also encompasses complaints 
about poor and unstable work 
conditions, and about the onerus 
double day. However, here in the 
U.S. that conversation usually 
circulates pessimistically if 
supportively around the same 
themes and may even serve to 
reconfirm women's stasis within 
these unpleasant situations. Here 
such conversation offers little 
sense of social change; yet in our 
recent political history feminists 
have used this pre-existing social 
form, women's conversation in 
the domestic sphere, to create 
consciousness-raising groups. 
But I now ask myself is that 
consciousness-raising sufficient 
to change women's behavior, 
including our self-conception and 
our own colonized minds. I would 
posit that since we do not live in a 
revolutionary situation, and 
there is no political organization 
here oroviding leadership and a 
cohesive strategy, and in par- 
ticular since the struggle against 
women's oppression is not 
genuinely integrated into left 
activity and theory, we women 
need another intermediate step, 
both to shape our revolutionary 
consciousness and to empower us 
to make and act on our own 
strategic demands; that is, we 
need to promote the self- 
sconscious, collectively sup- 

ported, and politically clear 
articulation of our anger and 

Furthermore, we must un- 
derstand the different structures 
behind different women's rage. 
Black women rage against 
poverty and racism at the same 
time that they rage against 
sexism. Lesbians rage against 
heterosexual privilege, including 
their denial of civil rights. 
Nicaraguan women rage against 
invasions and the aggressive 
intentions of the United States. If 
in our political work, we know 
this anger and the structures that 
generate it, we can more 
genuinely encounter each other 
and more extensively 
acknowledge each others' needs, 
class position, and specific form 
of oppression. It's a precondition 
to finding a way to work toward 
common goals. 

I think a lot about the 
phenomenon of the colonized 
mind. Everything that I am and 
want has been shaped within a 
social process marked by male 
dominance and female op- 
pression. How can women come 
to understand and collectively 
attack a sexist social order; 
sexist representations— in 
culture, in law, in medicine, in 
education, etc., etc.; sexist 
concepts of the natural roles of 
the mother, family, and children; 
and also sexist sexuality? I have 
lived with a man for twelve years 
and yet I understand the degree 

Three Chosen For Military Honors 

by Jim Ogden 

On October 13th, Ed Hand, 
Tom Marshall, and John 
Robinson were given the 
Distinguished Military Student 
Award by the Centenary Military 
Science Department in 
ceremonies in Haynes Gym. 

All three of the senior cadets 
did very well at Advanced Camp 
' as t summer, finishing in the 
u Pper one-third of their groups. 
* n fact, their performances were 
s ° exemplary, all were placed in 

the top ten among the 51 senior 
cadets at Northwestern State 
University, Louisiana State 
University at Shreveport, 
Louisiana College, and Cen- 
tenary. In short, Centenary's 
cadets so far outpaced any other 
college's that, based on the 
recommendation of Captain 
Foster, Dr. Webb, and Lt. Col. 
Fisher (the Professor of Military 
Science at NSU), these three 
were chosen above all other 
senior cadets to be given the 

Distinguished Military Student 
Award. This represents quite an 

To be awarded the DMS, one 

1) Possess outstanding 
qualities of leadership and moral 

2) Exhibit a definite aptitude 
for military service, 

3) Be in the upper one-third of 
their ROTC class, and 

4) Must be in the upper one-half 
of their university class. 

to which heterosexuality itself is 
sexist sexuality. It means that I 
am in a consensual relation with 
another individual who has more 
social privilege than myself, and 
he has that privilege because he 
is male. Heterosexuality is a 
social construction that in- 
stitutionalizes relations of 
dominance and submission, and 
it leads to the consequent 
devaluation of women because of 
their sex. Heterosexualdity is the 
central shaping factor of many 
different social^ practices at 
many different levels which 
range, for example, from the 
dependence of the mass media on 
the manipulation of sexuality to 
the division of labor, split bet- 
ween the public and private 
spheres, and relations of 
production themselves under 
capitalism. Most painfully for 
women, heterosexuality is a 
structure that organizes, 
generates, focuses and in- 
stitutionalizes desire— both 
men's and women's desire— and 
heterosexual desire is always a 
desire among unequals. Literally 
I am wedded to my own op- 

Furthermore, the very body of 
woman is not her own— it has 
been constructed by medicine, 
the law, visual culture, fashion, 
her mother, her household tasks, 
her reproductive capacity, and 
what Ti-Grace Atkinson has 
called "the institution of sexual 
intercourse." When I look in the 
mirror, I see my flaws; I 
evaluate the show I put on to 
others. How do I break through 
representations of the female 

body and gain a more just 
representation of my body for 
and of myself? 

My social interactions are 
shaped by non-verbal con- 
ventions which we all have 
learned unconsciously and 
which, as it were, are the glue of 
social life. As Nancy Henley 
describes it in BODY POLITICS, 
women's non-verbal language is 
characterized by shrinking, by 
taking up as little space as 
possible. Woman is accessible to 
be touched. When she speaks in a 
mixed group, she's likely to be 
interrupted or not really listened 
to seriously or thought of as 
merely emotional. And it is clear 
why what we study as the 
voyeuristic male look that shapes 
film practice, this male gaze with 
all its power has a social 
analogue in the way eye contact 
functions to control and threaten 
women in public space, a space 
here where women's freedom is 
constrained by the threat of rape. 

We need to articulate these 
levels of oppression and to arrive 
at a collective, shared awareness 
of these aspects of women's lives. 

To do this, the women's 
movement has used as a 
strategy, the consciousness 
raising group. The result of that 
strategy is that as women have 
come to understand their 
collective social being, that in 
itself becomes a transformative

To the Editor: 

Dear Friends: 

One of the major handicaps 
people with disabilities face is not 
their disability, but the barriers 
others put up around them. Some 
of these barriers are mental - the 
belief that a person with a 
physical disability is somehow 
less of a human being or less 
capable of living a full life. Other 
barriers are physical - the ar- 
chitectural barricades which 
prevent persons with disabilities 
from reaching everyday places. 

Since 1975, the Easter Seal 
Society has invited all people to 
take one week of their lives and 
focus their attention on 
physically disabled persons. We 
have dedicated October 16-22, 
1983, to that purpose. We call this 
week of learning "National 
Handicapped Awareness Week." 
We invite you to consider the 
meanings of "Accessibility" with 

Accessibility means, mostly, 
the overcoming of the ar- 
chitectural barriers in everyday 
life. It includes all the obvious 
barricades like stairs, small 
doorways, toilet facilities without 
wide doors and handrails, 
telephones for the public 
mounted at wheelchair height, 
and curb cuts to allow 
wheelchair-bound people to cross 
the streets. Accessibility also 

refers to the problems caused by 
solving one crisis while making 
another one: to prevent shopping 
cart thefts, many merchants 
install pipes around their front 
doorways. True, the carts aren't 
lost, but people in wheelchairs 
can't get in! 

The second meaning of ac- 
cessibility involves you per- 
sonally. Making the world ac- 
cessible can involve something 
as simple as reminding yourself 
and your friends not to park in 
spaces designated for han- 
dicapped parking. It can involve 
something more demanding, like 
working with merchants in your 
neighborhood to create and 
provide these designated spaces. 
Your help can be as easy as a 
monetary gift or as great as 
donating your time and energy to 
directly helping a handicapped 

Accessibility remains a two- 
way street, requiring us to 
remember the rights and needs 
of physically disabled people to 
participate in life along with 
everyone and it requires that we 
make ourselves open and ac- 
cessible to taking part in their 

Sincerely yours, 

Ronnie Kole

Dear Editor: 

I'd like to help clear up the 
controversy of Homecoming 
which was evidenced in the 
survey by reporter D. Truitt. The 
question is not whether the 
faculty should be responsible for 
the alumni's Homecoming but 
whether the students or the 
Alumni Office should be 
responsible. The faculty has 
nothing to do with this con- 
troversy. It is strictly a matter 
between the Alumni Office and 
the students. The SGA welcomes 
and appreciates Truitt's survey 
of student opinion and commends 
him for his good work, asking 
only that he makes the distinction 
between faculty and Alumni 
Office. Thanks.

Dear Editor: 

I'd like to commend 
Conglomerate reporter Carole 
Powell on the excellent article in 
last week's paper regarding 
women's intramurals. Not only 
did she capture the spirit of 
competition but also the 
changing attitude of women in 
sports. Such reporters should be 
regarded as a talented asset to 
the Conglomerate staff. 

Alyce Boudreaux 

Dear Students, 

On October 4, a proposal was 
presented to the Conglomerate 
staff at its weekly staff meeting. 
The idea presented was an at- 
tempt to unite the leadership of 
this campus, from fraternities to 
faculty. An effort would be made 
to bring these school leaders 
together and acknowledge, 
discuss, brainstorm, and solve 
some basic problems. This 
proposal, once the longistical 
problems have been solved, will 
be presented to the Senate for 
them to spearhead this 
"Leadership Congress." 

As it stands now, the proposal 
is as follows: 

1) The heads of important 
groups of administration, 
faculty, and student activities 
would meet at a pre-designated 
time and place. 

2) These leaders would in- 
clude: SGA-Senate, Faculty 
committees (PEP, EdPol, 
STLC), Administration, 
Publication heads, Fraternity 
and Sorority Presidents, 
Cheerleader head, Dorm reps., 
Activities Coordinator, and 

3) This group would meet to 
acknowledge certain campus 

4) These problems, once 

acknowledged could then be 
discussed and some unified at- 
tempt could be made to solve 

This proposal has several 

1) To unify and centralize the 
school leadership. 

2) To unify the student body. 

3) By achieving the first two 
goals, then a "theoretical im- 
provement in student par- 
ticipation and "Spirit of Pride" 
should occur. 

4) To solve present and furture 
problems with a decisive and 
unified Centenary College. 

Any suggestion, criticisms, 
alternate proposals, im- 
provements, etc. ..would be 
greatly appreciated from faculty 
and students alike. Any com- 
ments, especially concerning 
who should be invited to such a 
gathering, would be greatly 
appreciated. Any such comments 
you might have, please bring 
them to the attention of any 
member of the Conglomerate

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

"O.K., stand right there. Don't 
move." CLICK. 

It seems as if everyone is 
camera-happy. Everywhere I go, 
someone is taking pictures of 
something. Why? Do they feel an 
intense desire to record every 
moment of their lives? "I'm 
depressed. Quick. Get my 
camera and take a picture of 
me." Sound farfetched? It really 
isn't. I know people who want 
pictures of themselves on their 
deathbeds. Why this strange 
facination with two dimensional 
images preserved on chemically- 
treated paper? 

What do people take pictures 
of, anyway? Parties, picnics, and 
special and non-special oc- 
casions. Have you ever had 
someone take a picture of you 
after you had stayed up all night 
studying for an exam? It's not a 

pretty thing. Instead, people tend 
to save their film for times when 
everyone is wearing clean 
clothes and have washed their 
-'hair. Why? No one looks that way 
all the time. How about taking 
pictures at breakfast or during a 
fire drill? Those are honest, 
down-to-campus pictures. None 
of this namby-pamby "get- 
dressed-up-and-f ind-a-camera" 
stuff for me. 

Celebrity pictures are always 
perfect. Have you ever seen a 
photo of Michael Jackson 
yawning or one of Brooke Shields 
with a piece of food between her 
teeth? Forget it. They have 
dressers and hair stylists and 
make-up artists to work on them 
before a photographer arrives. 
That's why Rod Stewart's hair is 
always standing up perfectly 
when you see a picture of him. 
That's also why you never see a 
picture of Truman Capote at all. 

When you get your perfect, 

pictures (celebrity or otherwise) 
developed, what do you do with 
them? You look at them and 
throw them in a drawer to gather 
dust. When you pull them out five 
years later, you won't recognize 
half the people or places. 

You might try to show the 
pictures to a friend. If the friend 
is not in them, he will not want to 
see them. Who wants to look at 
other people's pictures for any 
length of time? "This is my otfl 
Bongo, savaging a helpless 
mouse. Isn't Bongo adorable?' 
So adorable I want to puke. 

I hope you see what I mea" 
about cameras. They are vifc 
things created only to annoy tW 
non-photogenic. That's why 
avoid them. I'm afraid someofl* 
will take a picture of me beiitf 
attacked by an owl, while I haV| 
a piece of food between my teeth 
on the morning after I haV* 
stayed up all night studying # 
an exam. 

'The Dining Room 
Gets Rave Reviews 

Thursday, October 20, 1983— THE CONGLOMERATE— Page 3 

by Mickey Zemann 

Well, MLP has done it again! 
Last Thursday was the opening 
performance of "The Dining 
Room," directed by Robert 
Busiek. And what an excellent 
performance it was! 

"The Dining Room" is a 
brilliantly conceived and richly 
humorous theatrical tour de 
force in which six performers 
portray a wild array of diverse 
characters as they delineate the 
dying life-style of wealthy 
WASPdom, and the now 
neglected room which was once a 
vital corner of family life. 

The play consists of six very 
talented actors and actrresses. 
Centenary's Cie Hawkins, Todd 
Moore, Dee Love, Malcolm Wills, 
and Lee Morgan, along with 
Shreveport's Kerry Rivers. 

All of the performers did an 
excellent job in all of their 
various (and varying) roles. 
Todd Moore, who was last seen 

on the Playhouse stage in the 
summer of 1977, did an out- 
standing job throughout the play. 
He kept the audience "in stit- 
ches" almost every time he 
stepped foot onto the stage. 
Hopefully, he will be seen more 
frequently on the Playhouse 
stage in the future. 

Dee Love is a sophomore 
theatre major from Hallsville, 
Texas making her first ap- 
pearance on the MLP stage. If 
her debut is any indication of 
what she plans on performing for 
her remaining years at Cen- 
tenary, we are all in for another 
talented MLP performer. 

Malcolm Wills is a junior 
transfer from Lon Morris College 
majoring in theatre also. It is 
obvious that he has alot to offer 
both Centenary and MLP and 
hopefully will be seen on the 
Playhouse stage often. 

As for the MLP regulars, Cie 
Hawkings, Lee Morgan, and 
Kerri Rivers— what do you ex- 

pect?? The people have con- 
tinually performed at MLP, 
much to the pleasure of all 
viewers. They all are considered 
MLP's best and favorite actors 
and actresses, and they deserve 
all of the praise that they have 
and always will receive. 

The Box Office for "The Dining 
Room" is open every afternoon 
at one o'clock and tickets are 
priced at $3.00 for students not 
attending Centenary. $6.00 for 
adults, and an offer you Cen- 
tenary students can not afford to 
miss— free for all who bring 
Centenary I.D. cards: "The 
Dining Room" plays at 8:00 p.m. 
on October 20, 21, 22, and at 2:00 
p.m. on Sunday, October 16. 

So you have four more chances 
to see this play— and I advise that 
you get down to the Playhouse for 
a humorous evening or study 
break — or any other excuse that 
you can find, it will be well worth 

Centenary Names Two

Senate Minutes 

by Clay Robertson 

This Column merely reports 
the events of the Senate meeting 
of October 18, and should not be 
considered the official minutes of 
the Senate. 

The October 18, 1983 meeting of 
the Student Senate was called to 
order by President Thurndotte 
Baughman at 11:16 a.m., and the 
previous meeting's minutes were 
approved thereafter. Secretary 
Carolyn Benham presented 
forms to the Senate regarding 
motions brought before the 
Senate and the use of the forms 
was approved. 

Tuesday, the Senate heard 
from its standing committee on 
Forums and its ad hoc com- 
mittees on Graduation and the 
Housing Situation for Seniors. It 
was announced that feminist film 
critic Julia Lesage would be 
appearing on campus October 30- 
November 1 as a Forums 
speaker. Senator Kelly Crawford 
of the ad hoc committee on 
Graduation announced that the 
faculty had rejected the student 
petitions about changing the date 
of graduation for 1984, but also 
agreed to move the date up in 
subsequent years. Senator Laura 
Echols of the ad hoc committee 
on the Housing Situation for 
Seniors requested Senate per- 
mission to send out a 

questionaire to gather in- 
formation about seniors and their 
feelings on the matter. 

In a "Special Order of 
Business" the Senate heard 
K.S.C.L. Station Manager Betsy 
Camp make her monthly media 
report. Miss Camp reported that 
plans for making K.S.C.L. stereo 
were proceeding nicely. 

Under "Old Business," the 
Senate heard reports on the 
student typewriters, the Blood 
Drive, and Homecoming. Senator 
Bob Thomas reported that the 
typewriters would arrive within 
the next two weeks. The Blood 
Drive will be held Monday in the 
S.U.B. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., 
according to Senator Richard 
Wallace. The issue of 
Homecoming came before the 
Senate once again, as Senator 
Bob Thomas reported on several 
possible ways of increasing 
alumni participation in 
Homecoming that he had 
discussed with Chris Webb. 
Various proposals include 
targeting Shreveport-Bossier 
alumni and supplemental letters 
by students to alumni. 

Under "New Business" the 
Senate approved a constitution 
for a P.E. Majors Club and ap- 
pointed Treasurer Diane Fowler 
as S.G.A. representative to the 
Public Relations Committee. 

The Senate meeting of October 
18 was adjourned at 11:58 a.m.

Shakespeare On Film 

The Laurence Olivier 
production of Shakespeare's 
Henry V will be shown on 
Thursday night, October 20 at 
7:30 p.m. in 114 Mickle Hall on 
the Centenary College campus. 
Not merely a filmed version of 
one of Shakespeare's histories, 
Henry V is a magnificent 
evocation of England, its king, its 
people, and its glory. Opening 
with an aerial view of 16th- 
century London that takes us into 
Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, 
the film begins by making us 
familiar with the stage on which 
the play was originally acted and 
the audience for which it was 
performed. Dissolving into the 
play itself, the film joins Prince 
Hal as he and his army embark 
for France and the Battle of 

"A stunningly brilliant and 
intriguing screen spectacle, rich 
in theatrical invention, in heroic 
imagery and also gracefully 
regardful of the conventions of 
the Elizabethan stage.. .(the 
adaptation) is as truly 
magnificent as any ever given to 

a Shakespearean script, both in 
visual conception and in the 
acting of an excellent cast." 

Bosley Crowther, New York 

"I am not a Tory, a monar- 
chist, a Catholic, a medievalist, 
an Englishman, or, despite all 
the good that it engenders, a 
lover of war: but the beauty and 
power of this traditional exercise 
was such that, watching it, I 
wished I was, thought I was, and 
was proud of it. I was persuaded, 
and in part still am, that every 
time and place has since been in 
decline, save one, in which one 
Englishman used language 
better than anyone has before or 
since, or ever shall; and that 
nearly the best that our time can 
say for itself is that some of us 
are still capable of paying 
homage to the fact."

Choir To Present 
Rhapsody In View 


It's time once again for Cen- 
tenary Choir's "Rhapsody in 

For those of you who 
remember it from previous 
years, this year's show will prove 
to be no less than another en- 
tertaining performance. This 
year's choir, with an unusually 
large number of freshmen, has 
been praised as "one of the best 
sounding choirs in recent times." 
Soloists in this year's program 
include: John Yianitsas, John 
Kolwe, Tim Hibbs, Karen Arm- 

strong, Monte Smith and Barry 

Since the fire destroyed the 
loft, the Choir has been learning 
all their music from just a few 
remaining copies. We are 
assured, however, that the 
concert will be a memorable 
occasion. The concert will be held 
in the Shreveport Civic Theatre 
on the nights of Oct. 31 and Nov. 
1. C.P. credit will be given on 
both nights. 

If you would like to remember 
Halloween this year, start it off 

with "Rhapsody in View." This 
year's show will not be the one to 
miss. The choir will perform 
everything from Blues to 
Broadway. And as it appeals to 
everyone, you are sure to hear 
some music you'll enjoy. Tickets 
can be purchased from choir 
members, the Music department 
or the Shreveport Lion's Club. 
Even though last year's per- 
formance was great, this year's 
will not be a disappointment.

-Around Town 

Tina Hackett 
Larry Morse 

Last Saturday we escaped 
from Shreveport and journeyed 
to Jefferson, Texas. You 
probably wonder why we chose 
Jefferson. To be perfectly honest, 
we weren't too thrilled at first, 
but Mom and Dad Hackett were 
in town for that famous "once-in- 
a-semester" visit and we have to 
try and please the folks. Belive it 
or not, it was very enjoyable and 
a great place to unwind. 

It is a beautiful fifty minute 
drive to Jefferson from 
Shreveport, located between 
Lake-O-the-Pines and Caddo 
Lake. It is a terrific spot for 
history lovers as it is one of the, 

oldest towns in Texas. Among the 
many historical sites to see are 
Jay Gould's private railroad car, 
the "Atlanta," and the Excelsior 
Hotel. The Hotel has housed such 
people as Ullyses S. Grant, Oscar 
Wild, and more recently, Lyndon 
and Lady Bird Johnson. 

The best part of our visit, 
though, would have to be our 
dinner at Ruthmary's. We had a 
marvelously delightful dinner at 
this fine little restaurant. Each 
day, three entrees are offered 
with a spinach salad, vegetable, 
and potatoe of the day, along with 
hot bread and strawberry butter. 
The servings are of great 
proportions and are a reflection 
of that good old Texas homestyle 
cooking. It isn't cheap, but 
believe us when we say "it is well 

worth it!" Dinner will range 
between $9.00 and $12.00 per 
person depending on a desert 
selection for an additional $2.00. 

Ruthmary's is located at 210 
Austin Street, across from the 
Excelsior Hotel. They are open 
for lunch from 11:30 a.m. till 2:00 
p.m., daily except Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Dinner is served 
evenings at 6:30 and 8:00 Mon- 
day, Friday, and Saturday. Be 
sure to call ahead for reser- 
vations at (214) 665-8922. The 
owners do not take any credit 
cards, but they will be happy to 
accept personal checks. 

So next time you want to ex- 
plore another part of the world, 
go "AROUND TOWN" in Jef- 
ferson, Texas. We're sure you 
will enjoy it. 


Greetings from the SUB. I hope 
everyone is surviving their test 
and not overdosing on mass 
quantities of coffee. We hope that 
you have enjoyed the past week 
activities. A big "THANKS" to 
Michael Hayes for two great 
concerts in the Shell and a big 
hand to the Caf for making both 
the Bar-B-Que and picnic a big 
success. While on the subject of 
the Caf. ..this office feels that 
they should be commended on the 
food they have been serving the 
past two weeks. We have noticed 
a vast improvement, keep up the 

good work. 

Healthy Cooking is coming 
along well. The last class will be 
tonight in James Lobby. I would 
encourage everyone to attend. If 
you are unable to come, you can

We are all trying to gather our 
senses after our Jungle Party 
blow out this past weekend. 
Somebody who watched the 

entire event said that we had an 
excellent time. The KA's would 
like to thank all of our luscious 
dates for really helping us make 
J.P. the best ever. Clean up 
operations are underway at this 
very moment. We learned a new 
way to clean the chapter room 
floor and still have a good time 
doing it. First, you get good and 
wet, then you proceed to do "The 
Gator" on the floor to some crazy 
tunes and before you know it the 
floor is clean and you look like the 
action Tide kid. One recom- 
mendation is that you shouldn't

tends to remain. Big Brother-

TACC Pre-Season Picks 

The Trans America Athletic 
Conference basketball coaches 
have selected Centenary College 
to finish second in the pre-season 
polls, behind Houston Baptist, 
while placing Willie Jackson, 
Eric Bonner and Albert Thomas 
on the pre-season 10 man con- 
ference team, announced by Bob 
Vanatta, Commissioner of the 
TAAC, today. 

The Gents have never finished 
lower than third in the league 
race and should be strong con- 
tenders again for the TAAC title. 
The maroon and white finished 
third last year with an 8-6 league 
mark and return three starters 

off that team. All three starters 
earned pre-season selection, is 
returning for his senior year. The 
6-6 superstar has already been 
tabbed as a pre-season All- 
American by the Sporting News 
and is going for 2,000 points and 
1,000 rebounds in a career, both 
of which he should reach. 
Jackson has been the Player of' 
the Year in the TAAC the last two 
years and the Newcomer of the 
Year in 1980. Bonner, an 
honorable mention All-TAAC 
selection last year, averaged 13.1 
points and 6.8 rebounds per game 
last year. The 6-7, 215 pound 
senior from Shreveport, 

Louisiana helped guide the Gents 
to a 10-4 finish last year. 

Thomas, a strong 6-2 forward 
almost nabbed Newcomer of the 
Year honors, after averaging 17.3 
points and 6.1 rebounds per game 
in the TAAC last year. For the 
year, the sophomore from 
Macon, Georgia averaged 11.2 
points and 5.9 rebounds. Thomas 
could become another of a long 
list of superstars at Centenary. 

Rounding out the coaches pre- 
season picks, the coaches picked 
Arkansas-Little Rock to finish 
third, followed by Samford 
University, Georgia Southern 
College, Mercer University, 

Ndorthwestern State and Hardin- 
Simmons University. 

Also on the 10-man pre-season 
all-conference team are Anicet 
Lavodrama of Houston Baptist, 
Craig Beard of Samford, Mike 
Rivers of Arkansas-Little Rock, 
Eric Hightower of Georgia 
Southern, Sam Mitchell of 
Mercer Rob Drum of Samford 
and Larry Hollins of Houston 

The Gents were the only team 
in the league to have three 
players on the pre-season team. 
Since Centenary joined the 
TAAC, they have had either the 
Newcomer of the Year or the 

Player of the Year, dating back 
to the 1979 season when George 
Lett was named Player of the 
Year, along with Cherokee Rhone 
as the Newcomer of the Year, in 
the same year. 

Who will it be this year? The 
Gents have three newcomers, 
Andrew Dewberry, Reginald 
Mosby and Michael Bell. All 
three are capable of turning into 
outstanding basketball players, 
before the season ends, but Coach 
Tommy Canterbury feels this 
recruiting class will take longer 
to develop than the previous 

Gents Baseball 

The Gents baseball team were 
busy this last week with two 
doubl eheaders against 
Texarkana Junior College and 
Panola Junior College. 

Centenary was on the road to 
Texarkana, Texas, Friday, 
October 14, where they played 
two games against Texarkana 
Junior College. We split with 
Texarkana, losing the first game 
8-6 with George Fauber ab- 
sorbing the loss for the Gents. In 
the second game Mark 
Mnngham. who pitched for five 
innings, gave up one hit and 
struck out two. The Gents won 8- 

In their second doubleheader 
the Centenary Gents were back 
home Saturday, October 15, to 
take on Panola Junior College. 
The first game against Panola 
was a pitchers dual. Stacey Burt 
pitched eight innings of scoreless 
baseball before being relieved 

due to a thumb injury. Stacey 
struck out two, walked one, and 
gave up two hits. 

The Gents first hit did not come 
until the fourth inning when Jim 
Kubik hit a triple. Jim Goldman 
hit a single in the sixth, Wayne 
Rathbun and Mike Greene both 
hit singles in the seventh, and 
Randy Williams added the final 
hit in the ninth inning. 

The game remained scoreless 
and went two extra innings with 
Panola Junior College scoring 
four unearned runs in the ninth 
inning. Relief pitcher Darrell 
Tureskis absorbed the loss 4-0. 

The second doubleheader 
ended in a 2-2 tie after eight in- 
nings of play. Panola Junior 
College was the first to score with 
two runs in the fourth inning. One 
of Panola's men reached base on 
an error and then scored when 
Panola's first baseman, kGideon, 
hit a two run homerun over the 

centerfield fence. 

The Gents first run came in the 
fifth inning when Jerry Smitha 
hit a single and scored on Randy 
William's double. Centenary 
scored again in the sixth inning 
when Rodney Smith reached first 
on a walk and went to second on a 
wild pitch, scoring on Darrell 
Storey's RB I single. 

Pitching for the Gents were: 
Jim Goldman- 4 innings, Roddy 
Taliferro- 1 inning, Ricky Har- 
daway- 2 innings, and Randy 
Elledge- 1 inning. 

The Gents next ballgame will 
be Saturday, October 22, as they 
travel to Baton Rouge where tl.ey 
will take on Louisiana State 
University, beginning at 10:00 
a.m. Centenary's record is 
presently (11-6-2), eleven wins, 
six losses, and two ties, with a 
game average of (.579). 

Gents vs. SMU and 
Arlington Baptist 

Centenary's soccer team 
travelled to Dallas on Friday, 
October 14, to take on Southern 
Methodist University and were 
on the road again Saturday, 
October 15, to Arlington Baptist. 

The Gents put forth a good 
effort, but were overtaken by 
Southern Methodist University 6- 
0. Centenary attempted six shots 
in comparison to SMU's twenty- 
one. In the first half two of the 
Gents shots were on goal, with 
one attempt by Jack Connor 
ending in a deflection. Four of six 
SMU goals were off deflections 
occuring in the second half. 
Despite their loss they marked up 
v.ell against the eighteens.

Baptist, winning 6-0. Centenary 
displayed a solid performance

scoring four in the first half and 
two in the second.

Finances at Centenary 

by Tom Ufert 
"They say that knowledge is 
power. I used to think so, but I 
now know that they meant money 
. . . every guinea is a 
plilosopher's stone . . . Cash is 
a virtue." Byron 

Have you ever asked basic 
questions about finances on this 
campus? For example, have you 
ever asked how much it costs to 
run Centenary, where it comes 
from, where it goes, etc. . . I 
didn't think so! Thanks to Dr. 
Donald Webb and Mr. John 
Lambert this reporter learned 
some interesting facts. Please 
note that these facts relate to the 
Centenary budget for the school 
year 1982-83. 

To start with, Centenary costs 
$9,000,000 to operate. The largest 
recipients of this enormous 

amount are salaries for faculty 
and employees, and the utilities 
needed to run the college cam- 
pus. Without question $9 million 
is a fairly large sum. However, in 
comparison to some other 
colleges, this amount is ex- 
tremely small. But this is no 
comfort when one considers that 
the 1983-84 projected budget is 
expected to rise $% million due to 

One might then ask where does 
this money come from? Well, 
there are three major sources of 
income: room, board, and 
tuition; endowments; and 
outright gifts. In the year 1982-83 
this college received only 
$3,114,302 in tuition and fees. That 
barely meets 1-3 of the cost. It 
basically costs $9,000 per student 
for one year of education (this 
year, because there are only 892 

under-graduate students, the cost 
will be about $10,650.22 per 
student to educate). Have you 
ever looked at your total bill to 
come to Centenary? For a full- 
time student to come to Cen- 
tenary and live on campus it 
roughly costs $6,000 without any 
financial aid. This means that 
Centenary is selling the product 
of education at a $3,000 loss!!! 
Centenary is giving each and 
every one of us $3,000 outright! ! ! 
(That means that Centenary will, 
this year, give to its students — 
$2,676,000 not including financial 

The donations that the school 
receives are usually given in two 
manners. A donor may con- 
tribute annually or give a large 
sum at one time. If the sum is 
given annually then the sum is 
immediately accounted for and 

used in the budget. However, if a 
large sum is donated, then it is 
invested and becomes an en- 
dowment. The interest made 
from the investment is collected 
and used. The original gift can 
never be used and is merely an 
investment-opportunity fund. 
Endowments are given for 
scholarships, department chairs, 
and even campus improvements. 
For example James Dorms, 
Rotary Dorm, and Hurley Music 
building were all built from 

Every year Dr. Webb and his 
staff constantly acquire gifts and 
donations from donors. Last year 
Centenary received $2,987,000 in 
gifts, donations, and additions to 
the present endowments. This 
was the largest sum ever donated 
in Centenary's history. In ad- 
dition to these gifts the college 

receives funds from the state and 
federal governments. Last year 
the state gave $265,000 and the 
federal government gave 
$378,923. These funds include the 
BEOG, SEOG, NDSL, and the 
College Work Study programs. 
These figures do not include state 
and federal student loans. For 
Centenary students to receive 
state funds, they must be full- 
time students from Louisiana. 
The state also does not send funds 
for classes relating to religion 
and athletics. 

The entire purpose of this 
article is to inform students of the 
enormous cost in educating a 
student at Centenary. Besides its 
always interesting to know how 
much something costs and where 
the money paid (usually from 
your pocket) for a product goes 

Space exploration: how important is it really? 

Movement of the rocket from 
the assembly site to the launch 
pad was scheduled for May 20, 
1969. As the huge 142 meter doors 
of the Vehicle Assembly Building 
opened, the bright morning sun 
highlighted the awesome 
machine. Most of the American 
public, and the world, knew the 
towering 111-meter rocket as the 
Saturn V or the Apollo 11. To the 
men and women who built it, it 
was better known by its official 
name: AS-506. Whatever its 
name, every one knew its 

destiny. This rocket was going to 
be the first to land men on the 

On that day, all of America as 
well as the world, watched as 
Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldring, 
and Michael Collins made a 
historic step in the space 
revolution. Incredible redictions 
were made at this time by 
scientists who believed the world 
was headed towards a space 
oriented technology. As interest 
grew in the possibilities of the 
space age, the American 

government began to invest more 
time and money in it. The same 
year they sent up a second lunar 
bound ship. The manned rocket 
would be the second in a series of 
six lunar landing missions to be 
completed by the United States in 
just four years. 

During these six mission tests 
were performed on and with 
everything from lunar vehicles to 

While the United States were 
the first country to put a man on 
the moon, the Soviet Union had 

begun the space race in 1961 with 
the first manned orbit. Vostok, 
the orbiting vessel, wa' piloted 
by a cosmonaut named Yuri 
Gargain. Gargarin was the first 
man to experience space. For 
only 108 minutes Gargarin 
drifted over the earth in what 
was to be the most significant 
experiment in recent history. In 
the course of those minutes a 
unique revolution occurred in the 
minds of men. That which had 
been fantasy had become reality; 
that which had been hidden in 

secrecy and had inspired dread 
had become a new plateau for 
human habitation. 

From space laboratories to 
space shuttles, technology has 
brought us closer to the stars. 
Man's ability to penetrate outer 
space has given rise to many 
speculations. Space colonization 
is not far from technicall 
realization. The question, is how 
valuable to man is his desire to 
reach the stars?

Where's the Nurse? 

Centenary College has many 
programs, functions, and ser- 
vices for the student, but to my 
knowledge it has no nurse. You 
know, someone to help you get 
beter when you're sick. Someone 
who has the stuff to put on your 
knee when it gets a big booboo in 
the flag football game. It justs 
seems funny that for being the 
oldest private college west of the 
Mississippi (which should 
correlate to much experience in 
all matters), we have no small 
infirmary or anything of the type. 
A simple day nurse that could 
work from 12-5 p.m. on the week- 
days I guess has no right to be on 

our campus. Maybe it boils down 
to the fact that we Centenary 
students are a hardier breed and 
don't need nurses to help us 
because WE JUST DON'T GET 
SICK. Daily I hear people 
complain about colds and small 
problems that a campus nurse 
could facilitate. After all, to some 
of us who live on campus this is 
our home; we don't have our 
Moms around to take care of us 
anymore. So then the question 
arises, why don't we have a 
nurse? Is it that a nurse would 
cost too much? Maybe somehow 
we could re-channel some funds 
from the cafeteria which has two 
ladies at the door watching like 

hawks to make sure you don't 
smuggle a potato chip out of the 
Caf. Maybe money isn't the 
reason, the real reason could be 
that students at Centenary are all 
so rich that we can afford to see a 
doctor at $40 a crack and so who 
needs a nurse. At any rate maybe 
it's something the student body 
should really think about; it's a 
service I feel that has been long

In a couple of weeks, Cen- 
tenary students and friends will 
have an opportunity to assist the 
College in a real way: by par- 
ticipating in the Fall Phonathon. 
On the nights of November 7-9 
and 14-16 (Mondays through 
Wednesdays) we will be Un- 
dertaking a vital effort to raise 
$35,000 from out-of-state alumni 
for the Great Teachers-Scholars 
Fund, Centenary's annual 
operating fund. 

Many have already signed up 
to help, but more volunteers are 
sought. Each night, participants 
will undergo a 30-minute training 

session beginning at 6:30, and 
then make calls from 7 to 9. As a 
thank-you, free pizza and a free 
10-minute phone call (to 
anywhere in the continental U.S. ) 
are offered to all volunteers. 
Money raised is essential to 
Centenary's operation this year. 
Persons who would like to join 
this effort are asked to sign up by 
Oct. 31 on any of the sheets now 
circulating on campus, or by 
calling the co-ordinator, Lisa 
Illing (869-5497), or the Annual 
Fund Office (869-5112). 
Thank you, 
Chris Webb 
Director of the Annual Fund

"You broke your promises," 
she said. "You didn't carry out 
the orders given to you, and this 
is not the first time." 

"I can easily explain. Just let 
me explain..." 

"No. The time for excuses is 
past," her cackle rising again in 
her voice. "There will be no more 

"The circumstances were 
wrong! You could see that. The 
girl was too suspicious, too wary. 
If I had brought her to you 
now. No! She wasn't right!" 

"We were all waiting for you to

Two "Followers" clutched him

away from the Unholy Circle. 

"I don't care if you don't want 
me. I'll quit. I won't tell 
anyone...," but his desperation 
fell upon deaf ears. 

"Take him to the Room!," the 
hag shouted, "Finish him. He is 
no use to us now." 

The Room. The place that one's 
nightmares fell upon him. The 
seat of the Follower's "justice," 
if it could be called that. The 

room of unspeakable punish- 
ment. The Room 666. 

"Stop! No! I won't let...!" The 
accused's pleas were muted as a 
coarse gag was jammed between 
his teeth and his arms twisted 
and bound behind his back. 
Lastly, his eyes were blinded 
temporarily by a black cloth 
thrown over his head. He felt 
himself jerked forward by one of 
the satanic guardsmen, and they 
led him away like a reluctant 
hound on a leash. 

They pulled off his blinding 
cloth, and shoved him into the 
door of the Room. "How ap- 
propriate," he thought "the last 
thing I shall see is the cause of 
my fate," the too familiar circle 
and star symbol staring him in 
the face. 

"Pull him away and open the 
door" boomed a voice from 
behind him. 

Before he could see inside the 
room, he could smell it. A heavy 
pungent odor he couldn't 
remember sensing before. 

Then, there it was before him, 
the sterile, clinical blankness of 
Room 666. The chamber was 
without furnishings of any sort.

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Boo. Ooh, that's scary. 

It's Halloween again, and 
we're all rushing around trying to 
find costumes for all of the 
parties that everyone feels 
compelled to give. I think we do 
this because we don't want to be 
left out when all the kids go trick 
or treating. 

Have you noticed that we are 
just as picky as chldren when it 
comes to choosing a Halloween 
costume? We don't want the 
other "kids" to laugh at us. To 
avoid being laughed at, I have 
come up with an easy guide for 
choosing a costume. 

Betsy's Guide to Choosing A 

1) Does the costume fit your 
personality? This is a key 
question. If you are a jovial 
person, do not dress as an ax 
murderer. Smiling ruins the 
effect of this otherwise horrifying 
costume. If you are talkative, | 

consider dressing as Howard 
Cosell or Rona Barrett. Better 
still, dress as a copy of National 
Enquirer. If you are shy, don't go 
overboard. Keep to your quiet 
way and dress as the snooze 
button on an alarm clock. 

2) Does the costume fit? Don't 
try to wear the majorette outfit 
you wore your freshman year of 
high school. Guys, don't wear 
your Junior High School football 
uniform. If you are small and-or 
thin, don't wear a suit that is 
comically big. Someone may 
mistake you for a pile of dirty 
laundrey and have you dry- 
cleaned. This is a very painful 

3) Don't dress as a Star Wars 
character. Enough said. 

4) Don't dress in period 
costumes. Many people dress as 
a character from a particular 
period in history. This often fails 
as anachronistic mistakes 
abound. George Washington did 
not wear a Rolex. Marie An- 

toinette did not pogo. Hippies did 
not drive Corvettes. 

5) Do not wear obscure 
costumes. It's no fun if no one 
knows what you're dressed as. It 
is tiresome to answer the 
question "What are you dressed 
as?" for three or four hours. 
Costumes to avoid in this 
catagory are parts of the body, 
kitchen appliances, automotive 
paraphanalia, and Dr. Webb. 

6) Use discretion. This is very 
important. If your parents are 
any/where in the area, do not 
dress as a streetwalker or in 
drag. If you are going to the 
square, do not dress as a nar- 
cotics agent. 

I hope these six steps will aid 
you in the selectionf>f a proper 
Halloween costume. I've already 
picked mine out and I can't wait 
to put the silly thing on. It is 
discrete, fits my personality, and 
is not a Star Wars costume. Have 
a happy and safe Halloween. 
Happy birthday to me.

VisCOUIlt Tonypandy Senate Minutes 

On Monday. October 17. the 
faculty voted to keep the date of 
graduation on May 27. 1984. The 
decision was made based upon 
two points: arrangements had 
been made and they had been 
printed & announced. Having 
done this, the college was bound, 
on a point of principle, to keep its 
part of the •'contract." But this 
decision is not the subject of this 

This year at graduation, the 
commencement speaker will be 
one of distinction and high 
esteem. The Viscount 

Tonypandy. formerly Right 
Honorable Thomas George. 
Thomas comes from the small 
city of Port Talbot in South 
Wales. He was born there in 1909. 
to the small family of a poor coal 
miner. He like our own Dr. 
Donald Webb, is Welsh and 
therefore nick-named "Taffy." 
He studied at the University of 
Southampton. Upon the ter- 
mination of his graduate studies 
he taught school until his election 
into the House of Commons in 
1945. He was a distinguished 

member parliament until 1982 
when he retired. His entire 
career is one of accomplishment 
and honorable public service. In 
ail his 36 years in Parliament, he 
never lost an election! He served 
as Deputy Speaker and Chair- 
man of the House Ways and 
Means Committee. In 1968 he was 
appointed to the position of 
Secretary of State of Wales. 
During his two year term, he had 
the high honor of being respon- 
sible for the invest ure of His 
Royal Highness Prince Charles 
as Prince of Wales. He is one of 
Great Britain's greatest modern 
speakers and statesmen. 

He held the high offices of 
Speaker of the House of Com- 
mons and Privy Councillor. The 
office of the Speaker of the House 
of Commons denotes his ex- 
ceptional ability in national 
politics and his sense of honor, 
service, and integrity (it would 
be nice to have a man like this in 
I^ouisiana! ! ! ). As Privy Coun- 
cilor his position was one of trust, 
from the crown, in his ability and 
sense of responsibility. During

Right To Life 
A Student Funded Ad 

his long career Geroge Thomas is 
famous for some of Britains's 
most important social 

legislation. His most recent 
political achievement is without 
question a reward long over-due. 
In late 1982. Queen Elizabeth 
made him a member of the House 
of Lords by bestowing upon him 
the title of Viscount Tonypandy 
This honor is the epitome of his 
career. He has been a lifelong 
and active member of the 
Methodist Church in England. 
For more than 40 years, he has 
been an outstanding preacher of 
the Methodist Church. He has 
served as Vice-President of the 
British Methodist Conference. To 
most of us this doesn't seem like 
much of an accomplishment. 
However it is the highest possible 
achievement for a lay-member of 
the English Methodist Church. 
He also was a Vice-President of 
International Christian 
Leadership and was the speaker 
at the Presidential Prayer 
Breakfast in Washington. DC. 

He has visited Centenary twice 
before: once as a lecturer and 
honorary Chairman of the United 
Methodist Heritage Fellowship. 
Then again he came in Sep- 
tember. 1982. to receive an 
honorary Doctorate of Divinity. 
He has also received honorary 
doctorates from Asbury College 
in Kentucky, his alma mater the 
University of Southampton, the 
University of Birmingham, and 
the University of Oklahoma City. 

One only has to review the 
outstanding honors, 
achievements, and political 
record of this man to be awe- 
inspired. Centenary College 
should be honored to have such a 
great figure on our campus. Even 
more so. this year's graduating 
class should feel some pride in 
that this great churchman- 
statesman is coming from Wales 
to speak to them. This reporter 
personally, looks forward, with 
great enthusiasim. spirit, and 
pride to hearing this outstanding 
figure of our modern age! 

I wish to thank Dr. Donald 
Webb and his Secretary Mrs. 
Ruby George for their invaluable 
time and service. Tom Ufer

Dr. Julia Lesage, visiting Liberal 

Julia Lesage, co-founder and 
editor of the film journal Jump 
Cut: A Review of Contemporary 
Cinema, will be lecturing and 
leading discussions on the 
Centenary campus Sunday, 
October 30 through Tuesday 
night, November 2. 

Lesage received her Ph.D. in 
Cinema Studies from Indiana 
University, and has taught film 
theory and filmmaking at Nor- 

thwestern University in Evan- 
ston, the University of Wisconsin 
at Milwaukee, and the University 
of Illinois at Chicago. She will be 
visiting Centenary after speaking 
at the University of Texas at 
Austin, Texas A. & M. Univer- 
sity, and the South Central 
Modern Language Association 
Meeting in Fort Worth. 

Lesage's approach to film is 
primarily through feminist and 

non-verbal communications 
theory. She is interested in the 
concept of "women's work" in 
both public and domestic space- 
particularly as this is depicted on 
film. She is also interested in 
applying various theories of 
exuality to examine film as a 
narrative art. Third World film 
and politics also plays an im- 
portant role in Lesage's work. 
She has studied for two years at 

the Peruvian Filmmaking 
Academy in Lima, and her ex- 
periences in Nicaragua can be 
seen in a slide presentation on the 
role of women in the Nicaragua n 
revolution which she will present 
at Centenary. 

A good example of Lesage's 
concerns as a feminist theorist 
can be found in the following 
exercts from her essay 
"Feminist Film Criticism: 

Theory and Practice." 

In order to write effectively 
and to give her readers, 
especially women readers, a way 
to evaluate cinema themselves, 
the feminist film critic must 
work out for herself a theoretical 
framework to encompass the 
whole range of issues related to 
film. Her theory governs what 
she says to what readership, 
what aspects of films she will 


Satti at Centenary: 

Thursday, October 27, 1983— THE CONGLOMERATE— Page 5 

East Meets West and Vice Versa 

by Carole Powell 

"Oh, East is East, and West is 

and never the twain shall 

— Rudyard Kipling 

Never say never, Rudyard. 
One need look no further than 
Bhatia Satbir Singh, better 
known as Satti, and his large 
circle of American and other 
Occidental friends to see that 
such a meeting can indeed take 

A 24-year-old Indian (Indian as 
in Bombey, his hometown), Satti 
came to Centenary .on September 
3, 1981, three months after 
arriving in the United States. His 
two years in this country have 
revealed Americans to be quite 
different from how they seemed 
to him before he came here. One 
of the biggest surprises occurred 
soon after his arrival. Having 
read Time and other American 
journals dealing with politics and 
the world situations, Satti 
assumed that all Americans were 
intelligent and well-informed 
about the world. However, when 
someone in the Centenary library 
asked him if the British were still 
ruling India, he knew he needed 
to reassess that assumption. "I 
was shocked," said Satti. "The 
average American knows 
nothing about the world. Once I 
was trying to make a telephone 
call to a friend overseas. The 
operator asked me, 'Where is 
Syria? Can you spell it?' " 

Another surprising aspect of 
Americans deals with Con- 
formity. Although this is sup- 
posed to be a country of in- 
dividuals, Satti finds that people 
here live under tremendous 
social and emotional pressure to 
conform to the acceptable norm. 
He cites the conversations on 
Saturday morning in Cline dorm 
as an example. "Everyone talks 
about how drunk they got the 
night before. You have many 
personas— you can't be your- 

for Satti, one particularly 
disturbing characteristic of 
American culture is that people 
*> not respect and appreciate 
knowledge. "It seems so stupid 
toat people here consider it

sophisticated to make fun of 
learning," he said. 

It also disturbs him that society 
has made emotions in love and 
religion to be trivial. "If you talk 
about religion, people find you 
old-fashioned and un- 


However, Satti has discovered 
not only weaknesses but also 
strengths in America. "You guys 
work hard!" he exclaimed. "I 
have friends who study hard, 
then go to work on the weekends. 
I admire people who can study 
and work so much." 

He also admires the govern- 
ment and the police. Although 
there is corruption in American 
government, he thinks that it is 
not very much compared to 
corruption in Indian government. 
Satti marvels at how unthinkable 
it is to bribe a policeman here. In 
India, it is an accepted, everyday 

As one might imagine, life in 
India is quite different from life 
in the States. "Easterners take 
time easy," Satti explained. "We 
have a cyclical notion of time 
instead of the Western linear one. 
Life is much more enjoyable. 

"There is no doubt about it," he 
continued. "Most Indians are 
happy. We are a very old coun- 
try--one of the oldest 
civilizations. As a result, people 
are very philosophical. They 
aren't affected by pressure. I'd 
rather be a member of the lower 
middle class in India than a 
millionaire here." 

When asked if India is as 
poverty-stricken as one hears, 
Satti responded, "Sure, there is 
poverty, but there are also great 
technological advances. That is a 
weakness of American jour- 
nalism. You never hear about the 
progress. For instance, there are 
between 25 and 30 Indian doctors 
in Shreveport." He feels that, 
although the poor in America are 
better off materially and have 
more aid programs such as 
welfare and unemployment 
benefits, the poor in India have 
more peace of mind. 

Indians also have a different 
attitude toward the family and 
the elderly. The Indian family is 
a source of great comfort and 
strength. The immediate family 
is especially close, and is the 

center of a person's life. Indians 
have tremendous respect and 
warmth toward the elderly. 
There are no inhibitions between 
the young and the old. An Indian 
youth would not feel un- 
comfortable talking to an older 
person; in fact, Satti feels that 
talking to the father of a friend in 
India would be better therapy 
than going to a psychiatrist in the 

The thing that Satti misses 

most about India is the romance 

in the way of life there. Lyricism 

is found even in greetings. For 

example, when someone asks, 

"How are you?", one might 

respond, "I am well because you 

wish me well." "When people 

meet," said Satti," it's in genuine 

warmth. There is depth behind 

the smile." He has discovered 

that American greetings also 

sometimes have warmth and 

depth. "Some people on this 

campus are very warm-hearted 

and spontaneous in their 

emotions. For instance, people 

who are not very close to me 

have, in a burst of warmth, given 

me a bear-hug on the spur of the 

moment, rubbed faces with me, 

and in one instance, reversing a 

guy's privilege, given mea pat on 

the behind, which is one of the 

few instances in my life which 

has left me dumb-founded." 

Indians are also very romantic 
toward women. "We have much 
tenderness toward girls," Satti 
said. "A guy couldn't have sex 
with a woman and then drop her. 
He would have regard for her 

"In the United States, having 
sex is considered sophisticated- 
it is the immediate goal. Here, 
sex is more important than love. 
Love is outdated. In India, if you 
fell in love with a girl, you 
wouldn't kiss her for two years. 
Americans have made something 
beautiful very trivial. Sex is 
temporary. Love is permanent." 
Satti sums up the differences 
between the American culture 
and the Indian culture in this 
way. "The U.S. is a new country. 
It has vitality and drive, but not 
grace like India. It's like a 
woman. A thrity-year-old is more 
graceful than an eighteen-year-

We are trying to make the best 
of things including school since 
the Jungle Party vibrations have 
subsided. We would like to thank 
the Chi-0 hooters for their fine 
hospitality and the good times 
provided in Barnyard this past 
weekend. Rally in the Alley was 
definately a stupor for all who 
attended. We have some good 
news for everybody in that 
"Quarter Reeb" night is tonight. 
The Kamikazie chair is 
definately dusted off and ready to 
go for only $1. We want to see 
everybody who qualifies as a 
human being down at the house 
tonight around 8 p.m. Be there 
early before all of us KA party 
beasts get too much of a head 
start. We know the perfect thing 
for all those trick or treaters who 
are rude and obnoxious. Sand- 
bags are available upon request 
at the house, so be ready for those 
little toddlers who refuse to 
leave. We will reserve the sand- 
bags on a first come, first served 
basis, so call and make your 
order today. KA volleyball is 
underway and this year is no 

exception. Everybody come 
down for a cold one tonight and 
get ready for Halloween early. 
One final note to you cat lovers, 
our sandbags are also good for 
litter boxes so do it for kitty. 


now the second time we've been 
in Greek Beat. Look out we are on 
a roll. 

Just to bring you up to date on 
what's been happening: We have 
a new pledge and his name is 
Mark Barnett. Also Roger B. has 
started going to starchaholics 
anonymous. Rolla found the 
corner of Livesay's house to be a 
very sickening experience while 
Woof continued to sleep around. 
Meanwhile Gargoyle Dalzell 
started a rock concert circuit at 
3:00 a.m. Next we rallied in the 
alley. Then brother Breit 
premiered as Dorothy Hamill at 
Barnyard and came face to face 
with the floor. Good job Barry! ! 
Livesay did his unique rendition 
of "Chicken Noodle." So as you 
can see it was basically a mellow 

We would like to thank the Chi- 
os for fantastic time at Bar- 
nyard. Pajama Party is not far 
off, so you guys better hurry up 
and get dates. Coming up this 
weekend is our Halloween Party 
given by our little sisters. So once 
again the Sigs are back being 
party animals as always. 

Rhapsody in View is coming up 
so we would like to wish the choir 
boys good luck. Especially 
Brother Breit and Little Sister 
Celia Sirman. 

We advanced to the cham- 
pionship in football after winning 
a tough game against the Theta- 
Chis. Thatfe it for now but we,'ll be 
back next week. A. E. - MAN! ! ! ! 

P. S. We especially thank 
Scotty, John D., Hoopie and John 
G. for their tremendous effort to 
raise money for the Fraternity, 
you guys are studs! !

write about, what effect she 
hopes to gain from her criticism. 
A good theory includes an ex- 
planation of the mechanisms 
operating within the film (form, 
content, etc.) and the 
mechanisms that go beyond the 
product that is the film (such as 
the film industry, distribution, 
audience- expectation, etc.)... 

When writing about a feminist 
film, or about any political film, 
the critic must evaluate what 
effect this film hopes to have on 
its audience. And what effect it 
actually has. Does it intend to 
provoke specific changes in 
milieu? How? If milieu is left 
relatively untouched, the critic 
can note this and set forth her 
ideas on more radical uses for 
film. A film which is a mere 
social critique ends with an 
audience saying, "Isn't that 
terrible! I cried to see it." A 
more radical work shapes the 
audience's mind, leaving the 
viewers with structures which go 
beyond their consciousness prior 
to viewing. They then have a tool 
with which to reevaluate that 
which they had previously ac- 
cepted as "natural." In a 
didactic radical film, such a 
change in consciousness should 
be accompanied by a picture of 
how things can be changed, 
which is a necessary precon- 
dition for the audience's acting in 
a new way after the film is over. 
The production-distribution 
system, interacting directly with 
all five or other sub-systems and 
technical and critical 
mediations, is the determinant 

system within the whole: it has 
the greatest impact of all the sub- 
systems on the whole. In most 
countries, film production has 
been institutionalized so that 
feature films are made in 
remarkably similar ways. And 
women are not predominant in 
the production of films. We know 
that Russian and Eastern 
European films are also 
generally sexist, and we may or 
may not be satisfied with The 
Red Detachment of Women (I am 
with the content, but not the form 
— reminiscent of Seven Brides 
for Seven Brothers — not with 
Chinese restrictions on film 
production.) It is a phenomenon 
that Godard noticed when he 
talks about Mos Films- 
Paramount. Even though the 
films are produced under a 
socialist economic system, the 
films are still oppressive and 
similar in form to capitalistic 

We need to document in detail 
the position of women within the 
process of production of 
Hollywood films. We must also 
note how it is that women can 
begin to produce films more or 
less independently — tracing the 
sources of available income and 
distribution. The direct input of 
the woman consumer on the 
general feature film market is 
almost nil. Indeed, films are not 
constructed with an eye to the 
reality of social relations but 
rather continue to reflect male 
(and bourgeois male) ideals. 
Distributors do not ask us what 
kind of films we want to see, and 
many of today's films reflect a 
reaction against the women's

In an adventure film, men find 
fulfillment and self-definition 
through direct physical action, 
initiated by themselves for the 
end of their own integrity. 
Women are not allotted the same 
range of physical action, and 
when they do act, their actions 
are usually more circumscribed. 
To give an example, Evel 
Knievel, Two Lane Blacktop, The 
Last American Hero, and 
American Graffitti show men 
initiating such actions to prove 
their identity (both social and 
personal identity) as drag 
racing, stock car racing and 
motorcycle stunts. The women in 
these films do not initiate such 
actions independently but relate 
to the actions of the men and are 
dependent on them. One can take 
a movie such as Day of the 
Jackal and note that it would be 
unlikely to have an equivalent 
female assassin or females 
employing that assassin or a 
comparable female target to be 
assassinated — as if any of this 
were desirable. Male characters 
are given attributes of power 
much more than female 
characters are. 

Forms for conveying sen- 
suality are almost completely 
male. We don't even know yet 
what the visual form for a female 
erotic movie would be. Women so 
far, even when making films, 
have found it hard to break 
through to making new kinds of 
films with new forms. Technical 
experimentation with the media 
has so far been done by male 
filmmakers. There are few 
women making experimental 
films, pushing the medium itself 
as far as they can, perhaps this is 
because the technical-chemical 
side of film has been traditionally 
of more interest or more ac- 
cessible to men, women being 
socialized to enter cinema 
through its aspect as art

When the critic writes with her 
politics up front, she provokes a 
political response both to her 
review and to the film at hand. I 
expect a woman writer to let me 
know where she stands not only 
in relation to the women's 
movement, but to various 
aspects of that movement (e.g., 
liberal reformist, radical lesbian, 
separatist, etc.) and to socialist 
politics as well. Readers do not 
need a precis of the critics' 
political stance in each article 
she writes. Rather, a woman's 
articles over a period of time plus 
the kinds of references she 
makes to activities and issues in 
the women's movement and to 
political issues in general make 
her politics clear. More candor 
about one's politics in film 
reviews is useful in dispelling 
once and for all the idea that the 
media just provide en- 
tertainment or that we have to 
take what we are offered; politics 
and culture are inseparable and 
the feminist critic has ideas on 
how to fight sexism in film. When 
I myself say that I am a socialist 
feminist, that means that I see 
the major forms of oppression in 
our society — sexual, class, and 
racial oppression, in particular 
— as interrelated and that 
women's oppression must be 
fought by collective action 
against those institutions which 
are built on class, racial, and 
sexual oppression: namely, the 
institutions of capitalism. That 
the critic put a label on herself as 
a certain kind of feminist is not so 
important as her making explicit 
the assumptions which underlie 
her analysis of film and her value 
judgments about films.... 

If she writes mostly about the 
content and form of specific 
films, the feminist critic faces 
the problem of just fitting into a 
slot alread prepared for her — 
that of writing a consumers' 
guide to film. No viewer wants to 
waste the price of a ticket; 
economically film reviewers 
serve a necessary function. 
However, by expanding criticism 
to include a critique of the whole 
film process, by writing for 
periodicals open to a broader 
perspective on women and film, 
and by working to help the 
practical cause of women in film, 
we can go beyond our assigned 

role as consumer guide. Like a 
book reviewer in a magazine or 
Sunday supplement, the film 
critic traditionally has the right 
to make generalizations about 
culture and mores. Thus 
feminists can conveniently use 
this ready-made journalistic 
vehicle not only to attack sexism 
in a film but also to evaluate the 
social milieu that generates that 
film. Furthermore, feminist 
criticism aids the growing ap- 
preciation of long-neglected 
women's films and hopefully will 
provide a basis on which to 
evaluate and constructively 
criticize those films.

Major New Service Student Considering 

A major new service for 
students who are thinking ahead 
to decisions about post-graduate 
and professional degrees and 
future careers has been an- 
nounced by the Law School 
Admission Council and the Law 
School Admission Services. 
Developed by the organizations 
that administer the Law School 
Admission Test (LSAT), the new 
service is called The Law 

A four-part program of 
publicatioons, services and self- 
evaluation materials, The Law 
Package, will help students 
explore and evaluate their in- 

terest in law school. Students can 
take -b "tryout LSAT" and 
request that the Law School 
Admission Services score it for 
their eyes only. They can use the 
results to evaluate their strong 
points and weak points. 

The Law package will also help 
students explore questions about 
the admission process and law 
school, the aims of legal 
education, and the range of 
careers available with a law 
degree. To assist those who 
decide to apply to law school, The 
Law package provides a guide to 
the admission process. 

The Law Package will help 

students make important 
decisions about professional 
training and careers. It is 
designed to acquaint students 
with the analytical thinking and 
problem-solving abilities they 
will develop in law school, and 
help them decide whether they 
really want a career in law. 
Freshmen and sophomores who 
are indecisive about their career 
paths will benefit from this in- 
troduction to legal education and 
legal careers. 

Available from the Law School 
Admission Services for just ten 
dollars, The Law Package in-

Summer in Deerfield 

By Alan D. Strange 

I spent nine weeks this summer 
as a research fellow in Deerfield, 
Massachusetts. Deerfield is in 
the fertile loam-laden tract of 
land that lies contiguous to the 
confluence of the Connecticut and 
Deerfield Rivers. Located 100 
miles northwest of Boston and 
sixty miles due north of 
Springfield, Deerfield is removed 
from the typical hustle and bustle 
of East Coast urban life. When 
the interstate came through the 
Connecticut Valley in the early 
1%0's, Old Deerfield's leaders 
managed to have the town 
completely bypassed. There was 
a n interstate exit to South 
Deerfield, which is the business 
Part of the town, but there was 
tot exit six miles to the north to 
Old Deerfield. 
The town of Old Deerfield is 
kid out along a one-mile long 
bleated plat with lots ex- 
tending back from the main 
s ^ re et. In typical no-non-sense, 
New England fashion, the main 
str eet is called simply "The 
Street." The eighteenth century 
Se ems almost accessible to 
^yone seeing Deerfield for the 
f »rst time. The oak-lined Com- 
j"°n and the eighteenth century 
^es recall a different world — 


Preindustrial world that we 

^ Ve lost as Peter Laslett wrote. 

ls "little world" was in- 
corporated in 1673, long before 

e Industrial Revolution ever 
f as to be felt here. Deerfield 

Gained somewhat isolated 

^ the mid-eighteenth century 
J* n it ceased to be the nor- 

er nmost and westernmost 
^Post of English colonial 
ne first two weeks of my 

SU m 

me r consisted largely of 

intensive training in the 
American decorative arts and in 
the material culture of New 
England. This training included a 
series of lectures, seminars, 
workshops, and walking tours. 
The Summer Fellows had earlier 
received a packet of six books 
that were to be read prior to our 
arrival in Deerfield. On the first 
day of the program, the tutors 
orally examined us by taking us 
to one of the historic houses and 
asking questions about its ex- 
terior architectural details and 
about its interior material ob- 
jects. This quite frankly scared 
all of us to detah, but it was the 
tutors' way of seeing if we had 
properly absorbed our reading 
material and of seeing how much 
we already knew about the 
American decorative arts. 

Aftet two weeks of workshops 
all day and house tours at night, 
the Director of Education 
assigned all of the Fellows in 
pairs to one of the twelve houses 
that are owned by Historic 
Deerfield, Inc. The earliest house 
dates from 1717; the latest was 
built in 1824 during the Federal 
period. I gave three one-hour 
tours on my first day of guiding, 
even though we were supposed to 
receive two days of training in 
the house before guiding. For the 
next seven weeks, each fellow 
guided in four of the historic 
houses in the afternoon. In the 
morning and in the evening, we 
did research on our respective 

Having done prior research on 
Jonathan Edwards, I was quite 
interested in the dispute between 
Edwards and Jonathan Ashley. 
Ashley was Deerfield's 
Congregational minister from 
1732-80 and opposed Edwards' 
communion policy in a series of 

sermons which he preached in 
1750 against Edwards' position in 
Edwards' own church in Nor- 
thampton. Edwards was 
lismissed from his church and it 
appeared that Ashley had won. 
Ashley had won the battle but he 
finally lost the war. The position 
that Edwads took concerning the 
covenant society was one that 
tended toward the disestablish- 
ment of the church and the 
separation of church and state. 

On the other hand, Ashley upheld 
the notion of an established 
church and valued the unity of 
church and state. The Memorial 
Libraries at Deerfield had 255 of 
Ashley's sermons in manuscript. 
For Edwards' papers, I did my 
research at Yale University's 
Beinecke Rare Book and 

Room 666 

(Continued from page 2) 

Only a black booth stood against 
the far wall. 

The captors prodded the victim 
toward the box. The odor was 
stronger and he heard a strange 
sound, tiny, barely audible 
whispers, coming closer still, 
drawn by a fatal curiosity, he 
noticed the walls were moving, 
pulsing as though they had his 
life in them. All was so confusing, 
the victim could barely imagine 
his fate. He felt himself thrust 
forward again. 

The sound was .louder. 
Thousands of tiny fingernails 
scraping softly against glass. 
"Wait!," he thought, "The "box 
isn't black at all! It is glass! 
What is that moving inside?!" 

Upon reaching the booth, he 
knew the source of the wall's 
undulating motion... 

Spiders. Thousands upon 

Manuscript Library. 

The Fellows presented ab- 
stracts of their research projects 
and defended them on August 12, 
Commencement Day. This day 
was filled with mixed emotions: 
joy at the attainments of the 
summer; sadness at the thought 
of leaving Deerfield. I was very 
pleased with my research and the 
quality of my fellow Fellow's 
papers. As I thought back over 
the summer, I realized how much 
of myself I had put into my 
research, my guiding assign- 
ments, and into the organization 
of Historic Deerfield. Deerfield 
will always be a part of me. When 
asked what I liked best about the 
summer it is difficult to reply. We 
traveled extensively and went 
i "behind the scenes" in many of 
the major museums on the East 

Coast. We traversed New 
Hampshire. We went to Salem, 
Gloucester, Boston, , Plymouth, 
Sturbridge, and many other 
places in Massachusetts. We 
went to Yale to see the Garvan 
Collection and to Wethersfield, 
j Connecticut to see the museum 
houses there. We went to the 
, Metropolitan in New York City; 
I the Henry Francis duPont 
Winterthur Museum in 
Wilmington, Delaware; Historic 

Annapolis; and we ended up in 
Colonial Williamsburg for 2V2 
days. This only touches the 
surface of what has certainly 
been the fullest summer of my 
life. Yet returning to the question 
of what I liked best, I must reply 
that what I liked best about this 
summer was Deerfield itself. 

thousands of ject black asachnids 
filling the booth to its top. The 
victim's heart was wild with fear. 
He could not even think enough to 
try and escape. All he could see 
was the death box of a million 

The door to the booth was 
unlatched and the victim stood 
before it. The horrible odor of 
decay wafted full force through 

his nostrils, nauseating him to 
the point of fainting. Spiders fell 
about his feet, some showing 
their red hourglass to signal his 
time ending. 

A force from behind sent him 
falling face first into the black 
crawling sea, and he could 
neither fear nor think for very 
much longer.

Support Soccer 

by Tom Ufert 

Centenary is, as we all know, 
different when it comes to sport. 
For most of us. it feels a bit 
strange to be in the middle of 
football season and not out there 
cheering on the team. We all miss 
those cold rainy nights on some 
strange muddy field screaming 
our lungs out to "show our spirit" 
for the old alma mater. Well put 
all your reminiscent feelings 
aside. There is a new sport in 
town to take football's place, at 
least on Centenary's campus. 
What is this great and 
fastgrowing popular sport you 
ask? Well it's soccer. For those 
very supportive few of you who 
have attended the games, just sit 
back and listen. But those of you 
who haven't been out there to see 
our men in maroon and white, 
take note. I had the privilege of 
observing our team at practices 
and games and these are my 

Our Centenary soccer team, 
coached by coaches Hempen and 
Evans, consists of about 15 - 20 
players from all over the south. 
These athletes are some of the 
most spirited individuals I have 

ever seen. During the day they 
are normal everyday students. 
But put a soccer ball at there feet 
or place them near a soccer field, 
and the exciting scenes of the 
movie Victory seem to appear in 
real life, like magic. These 
students participate in one of the 
most energetic, exciting, and 
elegant sports ever to appear on 
the horizons of America 

Soccer, because of its con- 
sistancy in play and constant 
motion, fills one with such en- 
thusiasim and spirit, that the 
spectator wants to jump up and 
join the game. These players of 
ours take strong pride in their 
game and the fact that they play 
for Centenary. At each and every 
practice game, they play with 
fanatical determination, an 
almost religious spirit, and 
constant team unity. When -one 
watches this team play, they can 
only be awe-inspired by the sheer 
grace, style, and elegance of the 
sport and its players performed 
in every play. This physical 
coordination takes rigorous 
training and brute-strength not to 
mention the total physical and 
mental dedication to continue 

and strive for the best. 

As I have stated this team is 
determined to strive for the best. 
But what is the best for a college 
soccer team? Well, this team is 
devoted to becoming one of the 
top collegiate teams in the 
nation, if not the No. 1 team in 
collegiate soccer. With the 
amount of spirit, pride, deter- 
mination, and dedication this 
team possesses, it has the 
potential of achieving its goal. 
They and their coaches have 
taken the first initial step — 
building a fine quality team. 
They need our help. We. the 
students, faculty, and ad- 
ministration, must donate our 
spirit, our time, and our 
resources to this truly worthy 
cause. It would truly be a "crying 
shame" to see such a potentially 
championship team fall by the 
wayside. I appeal to each of you 
to come out and see for your- 
selves this new team. For it. like 
Centenary itself, has class and 
promises to be No. 1 in its field.

Gents Defeat LSU Tigers 

The Centenary Gents baseball 
team travelled to Baton Rouge, 
Saturday, October 22, where they 
defeated Louisiana State 
University 14-7. 

The Louisiana State University 
Tigers were the first to score in 
the second inning with a two run 
lead on the Gents. Centenary 
picked up their first run in the 
third inning when Billy Harwell 
walked and later scored on an 
error. L.S.U. scored again in the 
third inning with the Tigers 
leading 3-1. 

Centenary scored again in the 
fourth inning. Kubik singled and

Defeating the Tigers 14-7. 

Stacey Burt relief pitcher took

struck out four, and walked four. 
Kubik was 4 for 5. . 

The Gents will be home this

Gents Lead TAAC inTalent Rating 

With th*» r>nllc«jiato h-jcL-otKoll 14 O Mnrlhaict I n».:»:, <vr n ^. . i ■ . ™ V^_-^ 

With the collegiate basketball 
season just four weeks away 
from tipoff, the Centenary Gents 
have been tabbed as the team 
with the most talent in the Trans 
America Athletic Conference. 

Out of 276 major college 
basketball teams, the Gents were 
ranked 140th with a 21.2 rating. 
Six of their opponents were given 
a higher rating. At the top of the 
list is Cal-State Fullerton with a 
37.1 rating, followed by SMU at 

34.0, Northeast Louisiana 27.9. 
Kansas State 25.2, Arizona State 
25.0, and Louisiana Tech 23.2. 

In the TAAC, Arkansas-Little 
Rock was second, behind Cen- 
tenary, with a rating of 18.5. 
followed by Houston-Baptist at 
18.2, Samford 17.4, Mercer 15.5, 
Hardin-Simmons 15.3, Georgia 
Southern 13.7. and Northwestern 
State 12.8. 

"I don't really put a lot of 
emphasis in those preseason 
rankings,' ' head coach Tommy 

Canterbury said. That stuff is for 
the press. I know we are going to 
have a good team and I hope 
they're right. Our league is going 
to be very competitive this year 
from top to bottom." 

"There has never been a team 
picked to win the league when the 
tournament championship in 
March, so you never know." 
Canterbury added. "We have 
three starters returning and that 
should be a plus in our favor." 

After one week of preseason 

drills, the Gents have been 
bothered by nagging injuries. 
Vance Hughes, a part-time 
starter last year, underwent knee 
surgery last spring, and he is not 
at full speed. In addition, the 
Gents will redshirt Joe 
Beaubouef, a 6-foot-ll sophomore 
center, while Eric Woodard is 
recovering from orthoscopic 
knee surgery he had two weeks 
ago. and he's not expected back 
until the third week in November. 
Centenary's Mr. Everything, 

Willie Jackson, has been looking 
good in practice, as have the 
Gents' three newcomers. 
Reginald Mosby (6-1 guard*. 
Andrew Dewberry (6-3 guard 1 , 
and Michael Bell (6-5 forward'. 
With seven returning lettermen 
and three starters back from last 
year, coach Canterbury has been 
able to spend a lot of time with 
the newcomers, teaching them 
his system, and that in itself 
should bring them along quicker

losing to the nationally ranked 
Indians 2-1 in overtime. 

The Gents, now 8-7 on the 
season, play two games this week 
ending the regular season, facing 
Millsaps College at 5 p.m., 
Friday in Monroe, and Arlington 
Baptist at 3 p.m., Saturday at the 
Centenary Soccer Field. 

Agaiast Northeast, the Gents 
took the lead 23 minutes into the 
first half when Jeff Foster scored 
on a nice volley from Scott 
Davidson. NLU scored four 
minutes later when Pedro 
Barrios scooted one past Gent 
goalie Mark Knepper to tie the 
game at one all. 

In the second half, neither 
team could knock one in the net, 
sending the game into overtime, 
when NLU's Mohammad 
Ghazizadeh scored 7:23 into the 
first OT period, giving Northeast 
the one-point victory. Neither 
team could score in the final OT. 

"We played with so much 
character today," head coach 

Glen Evans said of the one-point 
loss. "We ran out of bodies in the 
final half. We were only able to 
suit up 14 today, and that hurt us 
badly in the final minutes." 

Northeast entered Sunday's 
contest ranked seventh in the 
midwest region. The loss was the 
Gents first at home this year 
giving them a 4-1 record. Goalie 
Mark Knepper played an out- 
standing game recording 16 
saves in the contest. 

After 15 games, sophomore 
striker Jeff Foster leads the tearr 
with 11 goals and eight assists 
for a total of 30 points. Jay Po*s 
a senior forward, has kicked in 
eight goals and has two assists 
for 18 points, while halfback Seoct 
Davidson has four goals and :\v > 
assists for 10 points. 

Knepper is doing a fine jt* .i: 
goalie, where he is giving up '. t> 
goals per game. As a team, the 
Gents are scoring 2.6 goals per 
game, while their opponents .ire 
averaging 1.9 goals per contest

President Webb Honored— Toastmaster's Award 

by Tom Ufert 

On Friday, October 28, 1983, 
Dr. Donald Webb received the 
Toastmasters Communication 
Award. The seven Toastmasters 
Clubs in the Shreveport-Bossier 
area presented Dr. Webb with 
this award based upon his 
communication services to the 
community. The award is given 
to a citizen of our community who 
is a non-member of the Toast- 
masters Club and displays 
outstanding leadership in writing 
and speaking skills. The recipient 
must be an outstanding leader in 
his field and must be willing to 
accept it. 

The Toastmasters Clubs are an 

international non-profit 
educational association with over 
100,000 members in more than 40 
countries. Started by Ralph 
Smedly about 50 years ago, the 
organization's main goal is to 
improve the communication 
skills of its members and to 
encourage those people in society 
who have acquired good com- 
munication skills. Through the 
3,000 international clubs, the 
Toastmasters have helped more 
than one million people to im- 
prove reading, writing, speaking, 
and listening skills. 

In recent years the presidents 
of the seven clubs have met and 
chosen a member of the com- 

munity that they think has shown 
an outstanding ability to com- 
municate with other people. This 
year, considering his numerous 
speaking engagements on and off 
campus, the seven local 
presidents chose Dr. Webb for his 
natural talent to communicate 
well with people. They were also 
impressed with Dr. Webb's 
ability to work with so many 
different groups as President of 
the college and do a fairly good 
job in keeping them satisfied. 

The Conglomerate staff takes 
this time to pay homage to a truly 
outstanding member of the 
Centenary family and the 
Shreveport-Bossier community. 

Nineteen Centenary- 
Students Make WTio's Who 

The 1984 edition of Who's Who 
Among Students in American 
Universities and Colleges will 
include the names of 19 students 
from Centenary College who 
have been selected as national 
outstanding campus leaders. 

They include Todd Allen An- 
ders, Diane Mirvis Fowler, 
Pauline E. Greve, Lisa King, and 
Karen J. Klusendorf, all of

Senate Minutes 

Dear Editor: 

I'm disappointed that the result 
of the woman's flag football 
championship game was not 
reported in last week's , 
"Conglomerate." The Sexton 
Fun Bunch defeated Chi Omega 

Sexton Football Player 

Dear Editor: 

Why haven't the hedges around 
Haynes Gym been trimmed 
lately? One can't walk around the 
left side of the gym without 
getting hit by the bush or tripped 
by the vines. I think something 
should be done — and soon.

Dear Editor, 

As to the outcome of the La. 
Governor's race I would like to 
quote Edgar Allan Poe, "I have 
sometimes amused myself by 
endeavoring to fancy what would 
be the fate of any individual 
gifted, or rather accursed, with 
an intellect very far superior to 
that of his race. Of course, he 
wouldn't be conscious of his 
superiority; nor could he (if 
otherwise constituted as man is) 
help manifesting his con- 
sciousness. Thus he would make 
himself enemies at all points. 

And since his opinions and 
speculations would widely differ 
from those of all mankind— that 
he would be considered a mad- 
man, is evident. How horribly 
painful such a condition! Hell 
could invent no greater torture 
than that of being charged with 
abnormal weakness on account 
of being abnormally strong." So 
let us be connected with For- 
tunator. Buried alive, no chance. 
Well, anyway it's great to have 
Buddy Leach back in office, I 
needed a boost in my income. 

Name withheld by request so you 
need not know it. 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to congratulate you 
and your staff for the excellent 
job you are doing on the 
CONGLOMERATE. This year's 
CONGLOMERATE has been a 
pleasure to read not only because 
of the variety of topics you have 
dealt with but also because the 
newspaper has printed a broad 
spectrum of views. Although you 
have had many good features, I 
particularly enjoyed your recent

This column represents a 
reporting of the Senate meeting 
of November 1, 1983 and should 
not be considered the official 
minutes of the Senate. 

The Senate meeting of 
November 1 was called to order 
by President Thurndotte Baugh- 
man at 11:10 a.m., and the 
previous meeting's minutes were 
approved thereafter. Treasurer 
Diane Fowler reported that a 
tremendous amount of money 
was being saved, thanks to the 
new movie arrangement, and 
that the bill for the student 
typewriters was $1234.35. 
Secretary Carolyn Benham 
announced that the S.G.A. T- 
shirts had arrived, which excited 
a joy akin to that of Christmas 
from officers and senators alike. 

President Baughman an- 
nounced that the S.G.A. team had 
won the $50 first prize in the Food 
Fight and asked for suggestions 
as to how the money should be 
spent. Various suggestions, 
ranging from Senator Susan 
Scott's idea of buying a keg and 
having a party to Vice President 
Alyce Boudreaux's idea of 
donating the money to charity, 
were heard from the floor. 
Eventually the Senate decided to 
have a pizza party with the

The Senate then heard from its 
Standing Committees on En- 
tertainment and Forums, and its 
Ad Hoc Committees on the 
Housing Situation and the Media 
By-law Revision. Entertainment 
Chairman Michael Hayes 
reported that invitations to Fall 
Ball were about to be sent out and 
announced the movies for 
November. Carole Powell, of the 
Forums Committee, reported 
that the Julia Lesage forum 
would cost $400 and requested a 
check for that amount. On the 
housing situation, Senator Laura 
Echols reported that her survey 
of seniors and juniors, regarding 
their feelings on senior housing, 
received only 25 percent replies, 
and plans were discussed for 
increasing the percentage of 
responses. Regarding the new 
media by-law, Senator Matt 
Robinson presented the ad hoc 
By-Law Revision Committee's 
proposal. The revised by-law 
would make all media heads 
report to the Senate at regular 
media sessions and make the 
media staffs responsible, in 
writing, for any budget deficits. 
After some debate, regarding the 
means of enforcement of such a 
by-law, the Senate passed the by- 
law revision. 

Under "Old Business," the 
Senate heard about the student 
typewriters, the LSU'S- 
Centenary intramural football 

game, and about long distance 
telephoning. Senator Bob 
Thomas requested help from the 
Senate in helping put up sound- 
proofing in the Library study 
room where the typewriters will 
be put. Senator Ron Whitler 
announced that a tentative date 
of November 18 had been set for 
the intramural football game 
with LSUS. Senator Mary Ann 
Minniear reported that M.C.I, 
could mean a savings on long 
distance calls to students but 
M.C.I, would require the use of a 
push button telephone dial or an 

Under "New Business," the 
Senate discussed the putting up 
of directional signs on 1-20 for the 
college, and the fate of Publicity 
Committee Chairman Mitch 
Pengra. On the first matter of 
business, since Centenary is not a 
state school, the college would 
have to pay for such signs which 
could only be acquired at great 
expense. The Senate then, 
following several expressions of 
dissatisfaction over Publicity 
Chairman Pengra's per- 
formance, passed a motion by 
Vice President Alyce Boudreaux 
to find a new publicity chairman. 
It was then decided to, pay Mitch 
Pengra for the time served as 
publicity chairman. 

The Senate meeting of 
November 1, 1983 was adjourned 
at 12:08 p.m. 

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

How many times have you 
heard this: "Win a free--. Enter 
now ! " Have you ever entered one 
of these contests? You probably 
have. Have you ever won? I 
doubt it. Most people don't even 
know someone who has won a 
contest. I've got quite a few 
questions about contests. And, as 
usual, I've got a few answers, 

Who makes up contests? I've 
heard that there is a group of 
people, living in abandoned mine 
shafts, who spend every waking 
hour devising rules and 
regulations for games and 
contests. Among this group, 
there is an inner party of elders 
who invent the actual contests. 
They're a deeply religious group, 
led by a woman known as the 
"Great Sweepstakes." Chances 
are 4,000,000 to 1 that you will 
ever meet her. 

Who enters contests? 
Everyone. If you've never sent in 

your "Publisher's Clearing 
House" entry form, then you've 
probably called a radio station to 
try and win an album. If the 
album was given to the fifth 
caller, you were most likely the 
fourth. Or, the lines were busy 
and you never got through to the 
DJ. Did you ever stop to think 
about the possibility that there 
were 200 "fourth" callers? 

Now we arrive at the big 
question: who wins contest? I 
have come to believe that all 
contest winners are pre-selected. 
Preselected at birth that is. 
When certain persons are born, 
their names are written in a 
special "Winners Ledger" and 
the exact nature and date of the 
contest they are to win is in- 
scribed next to their names. It 
might look something like this: 
Karen Mulling 
March 17, 1987 
MTV One Night Stand 

Most of the people in this book 
come from small, Midwestern 

towns which no one has ever 
heard of. They are non-descript 
people, and often fade into the : 
background in social situations, j 
This is why neither you nor your 
friends will ever win a contest. : 

The last question is hard to : 
answer. How do I win a contest? 
Well, first of all, if your name 
isn't written in the ledger, and 
you aren't related to the "Great 
Sweepstakes," your chances are 
slim. You could, however, try 
entering as many times as is 
humanly possible. Or enter only 
once. There's always some geek 
who wins by sending in one 
postcard on the last possible day. 
Why not try a jamming device for 
phone-in contests? Just block all 
other calls until you win. 

There is absolutely no chance 
of winning either the 
"Publisher's Clearing House" or 
"Reader's Digest" sweepstakes. 
These winners are chosen by the 
kid who beat you up in second 
grade. Happy Birthday, Bro.

We are pleased to announce the 
addition of yet two more pledges, 
Mac Putnam and Patrick Sewell. 
And we are also pleased to an- 
nounce that intramural 
volleyball is going very well, 
thank you, after soundly 
defeating TKE II. As we did in 
football, we will continue to 
display our amazing athletic 

We are eagerly looking for- 
ward to the upcoming Theta Chi 
Parent's Weekend this Saturday. 
Red Death will not be served. 

The Chi-0 Pumpkin caroling 
was a hoot (Chi Theta?) and the 
ZTA seranade was certainly 
spirited last Sunday night. 

Zeta Tau Alpha 

When our Pledge Class throws 
a party, they really throw a 
party! We had an awsome 
Halloween party last Sunday! 
Gordon, thanks for building the 
bonfire even though most of us 
never got to see it. We were all 
surprised at who our Pumpkin 
Pals were. Congratulations to Dr. 
Webb for the prestigious award 
he received. We appreciate the 
Pumpkin Carols that the Chi 
Omegas sang to us. Teke 
Graveyard really raised our 
"spirits." Jami Garroutte is 
engaged; best wishes, Jami. 
Congratulations to Claire 
Weigand for being elected into 
Omicron Delta Kappa, and to 
Nancy Fox and Cass Hall for 
being elected to Who's Who. 
Emily Canter won yet another 

award for her outstanding hor- 
semanship. The Zeta volleyball 
team is out in full force, so you 
other teams had better watch 
out! We can't wait for another 
outstanding P. J. Party. Au 
revoir until next week.... 
Kappa Alpha 

Well, this week was just a tad 
bit more exciting than Dullsville. 
This past week marked the 
sensational return of "pink 
slips." If you didn't get a chance 
to obtain one of these, we have 
the names of the girls who wear 
them. KA-1 volleyball is batting 
.500 with an almost one win and 
one loss record. The Alkies have 
a perfect record with no wins and 
two losses. Onward through the 
fog, guys. Keep your eyes peeled 
for our "quarter reeb" an- 
nouncements for tonight. A few 
KA's kept the electricity from 
being cut off by giving blood for a 
small price this past week. The 
rest of the chapter are 
hemopheliacs or something like 
that. Next week we are giving the 
shirts off our backs since the 
sandbag market isn't booming. 
The KA's are sponsoring a 
spaghetti dinner at Mama Mia's 
one week from Saturday. Tickets 
and information regarding the 
dinner will be available soon. We 
enjoyed the Halloween carols by 
the Zetas and the Chi-os last 
Sunday. All you girls looked 
really great in your best dressed 
outfits. The KA's are discussing 
an annual cockroach race but 
plans for the stadium are sket- 
chy. We will talk at you next 

week so hang in there and take it 
like a student. I have neither 
given nor received any 
unauthorized aid on this article, 
nor have I seen anyone else do so. 

Kappa Sigma 

A good week was had by all. 
The big event was beating the 
Buffaloes (boom-boom?) in the 
championship football game. 
Once again this motly crew is on 
its way to winning the Sweep- 
stakes trophy. 

Another highlight was our 
Halloween Party given by our 
little sisters. Great job girls and 
thanks for everything. By the 
way Mike, how many crests does 
that make? After Halloween 
Party we are anxiously waiting 
for Pajama Party. We also can't 
wait to see who wins the best and 
worst beard contest. As of now it 
looks like Danny T. is winning in 
some areas. Go for it Peeler! 

For the most part things are 
pretty normal, but rumor has it 
that Mark Moates is going to try 
out for choir. Mark has diligently 
been practicing in the Cline court 
yard from 12 noon to 12 midnight. 
Good luck Mark M. We'll miss 
you on weekends. 

As for the tennis boys, they did 
a great job in their last tour- 
nament. Good job Gargoyle, 
Woof, and Livesay. That's about 
it for this week. A. E. 

P. S Floyd R.... Thanks for the 
wonderful test.

and sounds (not to mention the 
fatten food) of New Orleans. But 
I'm confident that you can watch 
over Shreveport for us. 

I want to thank everyone for 
making "Rocky Horror" a 
screaming success. As a first 
timer to the movie, I never 
dreamed a movie could be so 
radical. I hope everyone enjoyed 
the movie and all the other 
goodies. Congrats go to Bruce 
Allen for winning first prize for 
best costume. He made his grand 
entrance dressed as Louisiana's 
favorite crustation, the crawfish. 
He did have to fight off those 
whom had the look of etouf fee in 
their eyes. Also a big thank you to 
Gary Hall for the "Rocky" 

Don't forget the Leisure

Around Town 

Tina Hackett 
Larry Morse 

Are you tired of eating out 
every Sunday night? Do you wish 
you could cook a little something 
in the privacy of your own dorm 
room? If so, Safeway and a hot 
pot are the answer for you. 

We discovered that for only a 
couple of dollars you can enjoy 
one of many boil-n-bag dinners. 
Yes, its true, and they are really 
out of this world! Kor instance, if 
you are watching your weight, 
you can choose a "Lean Cuisine" 
dinner. The variety includes 
glazed chicken, chicken and 

vegetables, spagetti and meat 
sauce, and beef oriental. If you 
happen to have a toaster oven, be 
sure to try the zucchini lasagna, 
or one of the baked fish dinners. 
The "Jolly Green Giant" has also 
come up with some easy meals to 
prepare. He too has some special 
low calorie yummies, the best 
being the chicken chow mein. 
"Green Giant" has even devised 
a steak and mashed potatoe 
dinner in a bag. 

So next Sunday, why go out on 
the town when you can go 
"AROUND TOWN" to the 
grocery store. We think this is a 
really great change from the 
usual routine.

Last year, the Cowboys downed 
Centenary 3-0. 

"We don't know a thing about 
them," head coach Glenn Evans 
said. "I know they play a control

to a hurry up style. We are going 
to try and get healthy." 

"We haven't used Jack Conner 
since last Thursday," Evans 
added. "That's six days, and

Indian Art Exhibited at Meadows 

During the month of Novem- 
ber, the Shreveport community 
will be celebrating an American 
Indian Art Festival. Perhaps you 
have seen, throughout the city, 
brown banners and posters ad- 
vertising the event. The festival 
officially began on October 28, in 
the Barnwell Art Center at a 
reception and exhibition spon- 
sored by the Shreveport Regional 
Arts Council. The purpose of this 
festival is to focus attention on 
the Indians of south-east 
America. Our campus art center, 
Meadows Art Museum, has 
recently obtained its own exhibit 
of Indian Art. The exhibit, 
collected by Quintus and Mary 
Herrin, was borrowed from the 
Museum of Red River in Idabel, 

The exhibit includes Indian art 
from all the major Indian 
cultures in America. The Eskimo 
display contains ivory and 
soapstone carvings, and articles 
of hand weaving. With the In- 
dians exhibit on the Great Plains, 
one learns a great deal about this 
group's culture. These Indians, 
typically associated with 
Western films, were ironically 
simple Indians until the horse 
was introduced by the Spanish 
conquistidores of the Southwest. 
However, once the Indians 
became a nomadic people their 
culture was forced to change. 
They were forced to make ob- 
jects that were easily tran- 
sportable such as light hides, 
bags for supplies, bead work and 
other objects for self-adornment. 
It is interesting to note that the 
hides and leather pieces of 

clothing are covered with fringe 
for a specific purpose. These 
objects, including the colorful 
feathered head dresses ex- 
pressed mobility. The fringe and 
the feathers while motionless, 
appeared dead. However, as the 
Indians galloped through the 
plains these added special effects 
gave the Indians an appearance 
of flight. 

Also included in this exhibit are 
artifacts from local and regional 
groups such as the Caddoans and 
Missippians. The pieces of art for 
this group are mostly pre-contact 
with the white man and some are 
even pre-historic. It includes fine 
pottery that was fired yet un- 
glazed. The pottery was polished 
with stones to give it an ap- 
pearnce of glazing yet they are 
known not to have glazed any of 
their pottery. 

The most artistic group in- 
cluded in the exhibit is the North- 
west Coast Culture. These In- 
dians lived from northern 
California to Alaska. This culture 
was the only group of North 
American Indians to make totem 
poles or have hired artists. 
Powerful chiefs would sponsor 
artists and commission them to 
create fine works of art for their 
personal use. Some of the tribes 
included in this section include 
the Nootka, Tlingit, Salish, and 
the Haida; to mention only a few. 
The Southwest Indians, famous 
for their impressive cliff 
dwellings and pottery, are also 
included in the Meadows exhibit. 
Two interesting sections of this 
group's art reflect the un- 
mistakable abilitv of the 

American Indians to create 
artwork of craftsmenship 
quality. One tribe in the South- 
west, the Mimbres, would bury 
pottery with their dead. 
However, the interesting 
characteristic of this pottery is 
the small hole in the bottom of 
each piece. This was done to 
"kill" the piece so that it would 
be acceptable for the dead. Also 
included in this particular section 
is a piece of Indian art by Maria. 
Well, for most of us in- 
experienced Indian art ap- 
preiators, that doesn't mean 
anything. Maria Martinez of San 
Ildefonso Pueblo became famous 
because of her intriguing 
polished black pottery. She would 
take her material and mix it with 
manure to give it the right 
chemical qualities under the 
right conditions to create a black 
tint. Her artwork now is very 
popular and regularly sells for 
thousands of dollars. 

The last group included are the 
Woodlands Indians of Northeast 
America. These were the Indians 
generally associated with the 
early colonists. They made some 
astonishing leather bead pieces 
and some outstanding artifacts of 

This exhibit, for CP credit is 
one of outstanding quality and 
exceptional talent. It portrays an 
aspect of Indian Culture that is 
rarely seen or even noticed. If 
one wants to see a rare collection 
of artifacts from a consistantly 
mis-understood race, this exhibit 
is without question, your best bet.

Housing Survey 



As usual there is something 
anew in the air at Centenary. This 
year for the first time the 
Centenary Admissions and 
Financial Aid departments are 
sponsoring "Scholarship Day." 
For many years the 
administration has been eager to 
attempt this unique approach at 
encouraging prospective college 
students to look at Centenary. 
Over the past two months, John 
Lambert and his staff have been 
busy mailing out forms and 
preparing for November 11, 1983. 

Starting at 8:30 this coming 
Friday, the expected 150-200 
students will be greeted by Dr. 
Webb at Meadows Museum for a 
breakfast reception. Throughout 
the day the high school seniors 
will be ushered on an extensive 
tour of our campus for 
participation in various classes, 
meetings with certain members of 
the faculty, scholarship essay 
competitions, lunch with current 
scholastic residents, small group 
sessions, and an evaluation at the 

end of the day. Over $500,000 will 
be awarded through these 
interviews and competitions 
based upon the students' 
"scholastic achievements and the 
ability to profit from a liberal arts 
education." The students are 
required to have an accumulative 
3.0 high school GPA or higher; a 
minimum 24 ACT or 1100 SAT. The 
scholarships awarded are 
extended for four years provided 
that the recipient maintain a 
minimum 3.0 GPA while at 

It is good to see 
administration going out 
way to obtain more "fresh , 
for our esteemed college* 
new event appears to 
planned and developed, 
sincerely hoped that the day goes 
well and is successful enough to 
warrant its continuation! It is 
asked that if you happen to meet 
any of the participants, that you 
make them feel at home while 
they are here. Thanks !!! ! 


Page 2— THE CONGLOMERATE— Thursday, November 10, 1983 


Dear Editor, 

I would like to ask a question of 
the Student Life Committee — 
"What standard was used in the 
selection of Centenary's 
nominations to Who's Who?" 
Whatever the standard used, I, as 
a student, take exception to 
several of the nominations made, 
not because of the absence of my 
name from the nomination's list, 
but because I feel that certain 
other students were far more 
deserving of such high recognition 
than those chosen. There are 
many nominations which I feel 
are questionable, almost 
laughable. Are these people truly 
deserving of nomination to Who's 
Who? I think not. 

Name Withheld by request 

quite well with lack of noticeable 

student support, and what 

appears to be an unreliable 

reporting staff. 

Congratulations Conglomerate!

Senate Minutes

This column represents a 
reporting of the Senate meeting 
of November 8, 1983, and should 
not be considered the official 
minutes of the Senate. 

Dear Editor, 

I just want to take this 
opportunity to tell you how much I 
think The Conglomerate has 
improved as of late. The quality of 
writing has improved overall; the 
subject matter has become more 
suited to a weekly college 
newspaper; and the general 
appearance of the paper is now 
comparable to any major college 

I hold you and your staff in high 
regard because you have 
managed to maintain and 
increase the quality of The 
Conglomerate in spite (or possibly 
due to) numerous major staff 
changes. You have also coped 

Correction : 

The Conglomerate wishes to 
apologize for having omitted Cass 
Hall, from Shreveport, from the 
list o' nominations to Who's Who. 

Think about this

The Senate meeting of 
November 8, 1983 was called to 
order by President Thurndotte 
Baughman at 11:13 a.m. The 
minutes from the previous 
Senate meeting were approved 
following a request by Secretary 
Carolyn Benham that the 
Senators be merciful concerning 
typographical errors. 

The Senate heard from its 
Standing committee on Elections 
and its ad hoc committee on the 
Senior Housing Situation. 
Elections Committee Chair- 
person Dawn Sikes reported on 
the turn-out for Homecoming 
Court elections had been 23 
percent in the preliminary 
election and 37 percent in the 
final balloting, and in Monday's 
Pacesetter election turn-out was 
21 percent. Senator Laura 
Echols, chairperson of the ad hoc 
Senior Housing Situation Com- 
mittee, reported that an article 
on the housing problem was to 
have been in THE 
CONGLOMERATE last week but 
for some reason had not ap- 
peared, delaying her com- 
mittee's work by one week. 

In the second of its special 
"Media Sessions" the Senate 
heard from the heads of the 

various media. YONCOPIN 
editor Dawn Calhoun reported 
that the yearbook was doing well 
financially and on its deadlines. 
Lea Ann Burelbach, editor of 
nounced that the newspaper's 
salary structure had been 
modified, and that the paper had 
a surplus of $75 for October. Vice 
President Alyce Boudreaux 
questioned last week's four page 
paper which Editor Burelbach 
stated was caused by a lack of 
copy. K.S.C.L. Station Manager 
Betsy Camp reported that the 
station had unexpectedly been 
forced to spend $900, paying off 
the station's old engineer, and 
that the money would be made up 
by cuts in other areas. Camp also 
announced that K.S.C.L. may 
begin giving away concert tickets 
in the near future, which seemed 
to get Treasurer Diane Fowler's 
attention. Brad Hoge, editor of 
PEGASUS, reported that the 
magazine would be forty pages in 
length and 1,000 copies would be 
produced. Editor Hoge also 
reported that a budget deficit 
would exist and be paid for 
through the sale of ad- 
vertisements or donations. 

Under "Old Business" the 
Senate primarily discussed long 
distance telephone service to the 
campus. Senator Mary Anne 
Minniear reported that all long 
distance services required the 
use of a push button phone or an 
adapter. With Dean of Students 

Dick Anders, the Senate 
discussed possible future options 
for Centenary telephone service 
such as modular hook-ups and 
each student purchasing or 
bringing his own phone: Vice 
President Alyce Boudreaux 
termed the modular hook-ups as 
BY. OP.— Bring Your Own 
Phone. An ad hoc committee, 
chaired by Senator Bill Ball, was 
designated to look into the op- 
tions available concerning the 
telephone situation. Tuesday, the 
Senate also tabled discussion 
until a later date on the bleachers 
and the football game with LSU- 
S. Traci Murrell was appointed to 
chair the Publicity Committee, 
following a discussion and vote 
on the nominees. 

Under "New Business" the 
Senate heard from Director of 
Alumni Relations, Nancy P. 
Gerding, on the subject of 
Homecoming and its related 
events. Displaying a tremendous 
level of energy, Mrs. Gerding 
asked the Senate to participate in 
banner and decorating contests 
for cash prizes. A dance, paid for 
by voluntary $30 donation from 
campus organizations, will be 
held in Haynes Gym following the 

The Senate meeting of 
November 8, 1983 was adjourned 
at 12:27 p.m. 

Editor's note: The article on 
the housing problem was not 
turned in, therefore not printed. 
We regret any cause for delay. 

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

O.K. So, urn, like, I've been 
listening to people talk, you know, 
for, like, the last week, and, uh, 
this is, like, what I heard. 
Actually, I am amazed at the 
quantity of slang expressions that 
are used regularly by college 
students who are being 
"educated'. We use them 
everyday without thinking. But, 
when we speak to people other 
than our fellow students or write 
papers, our vocabulary 

automatically increases. To 
illustrate my point, I have created 
an imaginary student and 
followed him through a typical 

A Day in the Life of John Doe 

John began his day by speaking 
to his best friend, Jack. 

"What's goin' on? Did you do 
some heavy partyin' last night? 
How's your head? " 

On his way to class, John met 

"Good morning, sir... yes, I am 
feeling a little peaked. Some 
friends and I engaged in a little 
fraternity diversion last night and 
I am afraid we used no 
moderation, whatsoever." 

John went to class, and on his 
way to the S.U.B., he encountered 
an attractive female. 

"Hey, woman. You're lookin' 
pretty fine. Whatcha doin' Friday 

After being snubbed, John 
moved onto his next class, during 
which he wrote a paper. 
"The unqualified accusation 

made by has little or 

nothing to do with the state of 
affairs in..." 

John then went to the cafeteria 
where he ate a delicious, 
wholesome meal. After eating, he 
went to the Coffeehouse for MTV 
and conversation. 

"This is a killer video, man. 
Check out that blonde chick. Man, 
I'd like to..." 

. Having not noticed that every 
female in the room had left, John 
scanned the area for date 

prospects. Having seen one behind 
the counter, he made his move. 
She appeared to be older, so John 
was cautious in his delivery. 

"Excuse me, but haven't I seen 
you at the museum? You appear 
to be a woman of some taste. May 
I interest you in an evening of 
wine and conversation?" 

Success. John rushed back to 
his room to announce his conquest 
to Jack. 

"Hey, bro. Like I've got one h- 
of a heavy date for this weekend. 
Man she's so fine. I mean, a 
definite 8' 2." 

You see what I mean? John 
made efficient use of two separate 
vocabularies. His rewards were 
many. He got sympathy from * 
teacher, an "A" on a paper, and a 
date with an "older woman". 

All college students tend to 
utilize two vocabularies and those 
who do it effectively can reap 
endless benefits. The only 
problem is that a person may g e 
his vocabularies confused at* 
greet Dr. Webb like this : 
"Hey, bud. Wanna party?"

Lesage speaks on public 
and domestic space 

by Carole Powell 

In the United States today, a 
woman is paid only 59* to every 
dollar earned by a man. This is 
partly due to the division of public 
and domestic space, the subject 
discussed by Julia Lesage, who 
visited Centenary October 30- 
November 2, in Marriage and 
Family class. 

According to Lesage, men have 
been traditionally more active in 
the public sphere, while women 
have been more active in the 
private sphere. This applies even 
when the work performed by the 
sexes is similar. For example, 
women grow gardens while men 
hunt and bring in "prestige" food. 
Women tend the sick at home, but 
men are doctors in the hospitals. 
Although women usually teach 
their children religions, 
preachers, bishops, and other 
members of church hierarchy are 

The work of the 
private/domestic sphere is unpaid 

labor, performed almost 
exclusively by women and the 
elderly. This work includes not 
only physical labor, such as 
housework, but also mental labor, 
such as "ego tending" — 
monitoring the emotions of others 
in the household, especially 
children and men. An example of 
ego tending cited by Lesage was a 
wife making sure that her 
husband has the largest piece of 
meat for supper when he has had 
a bad day. She also noted that a 
woman must continue to perform 
ego tending if she moves into the 
public sphere in order to avoid 
being labeled "harsh." 

Lesage pointed out that even 
when women do move into the 
public sphere, it is usually into 
jobs in schools, stores, 
restaurants, hospitals, and 
churches — jobs most like those 
found in the domestic sphere. 
These jobs are usually relatively 
low-paying; hence, the female 59< 
to the male dollar. 

Why is it that women seem to be

stuck in this domestic rut, even 
when they seek employment? 
Lesage discussed some ideas from 
The Reproduction of Mothering by 
Nancy Chodorow. A girl is fe- 
embedded into the domestic 
sphere via her mother. The bond 
between mother and daughter is 
formed to a great degree by the 
mother teaching the daughter the 
work of the domestic sphere. That 
is how a girl learns to be a girl? 
How does a boy learn to be a boy? 
A boy learns "maleness" by 
hunting, tinkering in the toolshed, 
playing with "the gang", and 
going to ballgames — in other 
words, by doing things outside the 
domestic sphere of his mother and 

Thus, he becomes a public 
person. Hence, he earns his dollar.

Fast For Life 

by Michael Hayes 

Centenary College seems to be 
far removed from the poor, 
undeveloped countries of the 
world where fifteen to twenty 
million people die each year from 
hunger-related causes, but a 
group of concerned students is 
trying to bring the reality of 
starvation a little closer to home. 
November 21st, at 7:30 a.m., a 
group of students will begin a 
twenty-four hour fast for World 
Hunger. Symbolic fasting has 
long been a way to raise 
awareness and spark interest in 
certain issues, and that's what 
these students are hoping to do. It 
doesn't stop there though, 
because these students also want 
to raise money through their 
fasting to support two hunger 
causes: Oxfarm America (an 
international organization with 
hunger projects in Asia, Africa, 

and Latin America), and 
Christian Services (a Shreveport 
organization working to help 
eradicate hunger and poverty 
here in town). The Methodist 
Student Movement is the 
organization sponsoring the 
fast— if you are interested in 
joining in the Fast for World 
Hunger, want to sponsor a faster, 
or just want to know more about 
World Hunger— contact any 
MSM member or Michael Hayes 
(in the Smith Building). 

Think about it: Can you give up 
food for one day, so that others 
may have one day of food?

Housing Survey 

On October 24th, an SGA 
survey was sent out to on-campus 
Juniors and Seniors about 
housing regulations. The purpose 
of this questionaire was to 
estimate financial loss the 
college would incur if the present 
housing rule (no one can move off 
campus unless it is with parents 
or 22 years of age) was changed 
to state that Seniors would have 
the choice to live on or off 

The survey deadline was Oc- 
tober 28th, but only 25 percent 
were returned. Therefore, the 
date has been extended to Nov. 
11. The surveys must be returned 
before these costs can be 
estimated and the change 
proposed to the administration. 
GET INVOLVED and respond by 
sending in your survey to Laura 
Echols (James Annex) or Mary 
Anne Minniear (Hardin).

Metropolitan Museum of Art in 
New York, this prestigious event, 
sponsored by the Art Guild and 
the Museum, will be shown in 
only two other museums, the 
Metropolitan and the Arts In- 
stitute of Chicago. A film 
"American Light: The Luminist 
Movement, 1850-1875," will be

Movie Review 

THE SEARCHERS, directed 
by John Ford, and starring John 
Wayne, Natalie Wood, Jeffrey 
Hunter, and Vera Miles, will be 
shown on Tuesday, November 15 
at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in 114 
Mickle Hall. 

As Ethan Edwards, John 
Wayne gives perhaps his best 

Sub Scoop 

performance as an actor. His 
character is a wandering Civil 
War veteran who spends several 
years searching for a niece who 
has been captured by Indians. 

During this search he comes to 
question the validity of his ac- 
tions in a world that is evolving 
from the Wilderness to 
Civilization. As one film critic 
has written, "Wayne creates a 
character who is the summation 
of the wanderers he played in 
other Ford films, a lost cavalier 
whom we both sympathize- with 
and dislike, while his dogged 
journey across the American 
landscape, indifferent to both its 
beauty and danger, identifies 
him with the pilgrim aspect of 
Ford's essential hero." 

General admission is $2.00; 
student admission is $1.00. C. P. 
credit is available.

Around Town 

by Tina Hackett and 
Larry Morse 

If you are looking for the perfect 
eating establishment to begin a 
beautiful Fall Ball evening, Seven 
Sisters is the perfect place for 
such an event. Located downtown 
in the square, Seven Sisters offers 
a devine menu and an atmosphere 
that reminds us of yesterday as 
well as today. 

The menu consists of spicy 
appetizers ranging from delicious 
fried broccoli and cheese and 
oysters on the half shell. Entrees 
range from steaks to delicious 
prime rib. Seafood is another 
specialty and a wide variety of 
gourment hamburgers are 

Included in the price of the meal 
is a fantastic fresh salad bar. A 
wide variety of vegetables, fruits, 
and prepared salads are 

Prices here run from moderate 
to expensive. We add that even 
though it costs a bit more, the 
taste and quality here are worth 
it. They don't accept personal 
checks but they will be happy to 
take your Visa, Mastercard, or 
American Express card. They 
open for lunch Monday through 
Friday at 11:30 a.m. Dinner is 
served until 10:15 p.m. Monday 
through Friday and from 5 p.m. 

This year, if you want a special 
dinner before the Fall Ball, get 
"AROUND TOWN" to Seven 

Neither rain, nor fog, nor 
gloom of night, nor a fire two 
blocks from our hotel in the 
Quarter, could prevent the team 
of Heard and Jef fers from having 
a nice trip. We learned many new 
ideas and concepts and even set 
up some programs and en- 
tertainment. One program we 
will have in spring is Dr. JeL 
Ickes from LSU-S speaking on 
Love. He teaches a class on Love 
at LSU-S and is quite an amusing 
speaker. Also on the agenda is a 
hypnotist. Not only does he put on 
a show, he also explains how you 
can use hypnosis to help you 
study better, lose weight (that's 
my favorite), and stop smoking. 
So, be on the look-out, spring is 
going to be full of surprises. 

We have a celebrity on our 
campus... Lisa Chaisson. She was 
our candidate for the make-over 
Monday night. To a crowd of 
around 40, Rex and Candy 
transformed Lisa from a cute 
coed to a beauty queen, whose 
picture will be seen in the 
Fashion section of the Shreveport 
Times. I would like to not only 
give a big "THANKS" to Lisa for 
being brave enough to do it, but 

also to Kyle for supporting her. 

Don't forget Fall Ball is this 
week-end. If you do not know how 
to get to Le Boss'ier, see either 
Michael Hayes or myself. 

The next Leisure Learning 
course will be "Entertaining with 
Andre'". Andre', from Andre's 
Gourmet Shop will be in James 
Lobby next Thursday speaking 
on entertaining tips and ideas. I 
am going to see if he'll bring 
some samples of his gourmet 
items for us to munch on. 

This office would like to 
welcome Nancy Porter Gerding 
back to Centenary. She has alot 
of good ideas for Homecoming 
(no, it is not a four letter word) 
and I hope everyone will support 

I would like to end this week by 
asking each of you to stick 
together and help each other 
through some rough times many 
of you are going through. There 
has been a lot of sickness and 
tragedy this week, but I feel if we 
support each other we'll pull 
through. Remember, only 14 
days till Thanksgiving. 

Until next week. 


Volunteers Needed 
For Phone-A-Thon 

Twice a year the Annual Fund 
office conducts a Phone-a-thon to 
gain contributions and pledges to 
the college. Every fall and spring 
the Annual Fund office, now 
headed by Chris Webb, utilizes 
the resources and time of student 
volunteers to aid in this out- 
standing project. During this fall 
drive, which began on Monday, 
November 7, about 60 different 
students will contact out-of-state 
alumni, parents, and friends of 
Centenary College. In six nights 
these volunteers will contact 
about 3,000 people over a period 
of two hours each night. Each 
volunteer is trained for about 30 
minutes sometime before the 
session. Using computer cards, 
the volunteers contact the 
prospective contributors and 
attempt to obtain a pledge of 
financial aid to the college. The 

desired $35,000 that will hopefully 
be collected, becomes the bulk of 
the Great Teacher's-Scholar's 
Fund. This fund is an 
unrestricted amount of money 
devoted basically to operational 
costs for the college. The Phone- 
a-thon will continue November 
14, 15 & 16. If you are interested in 
volunteering your time to this 
important money drive, contact 
Lisa Illing (student recruitor for 
the Phone-a-thon). To encourage 
participation, the administration 
will treat all volunteers to dinner 
at Mr. Gattis after the project is 
completed each evening. As well, 
they have agreed to a free 10 
minute phone call to any place in 
the United States. So if you have 
the time, get out there and 
support your alma mater, 
Centenary College.

Coach Harrison Pleased 

Current Events 

for the week of....\ovember 6, 1983 

"This has been the best two 
months of fall practice we have 
had in three or four years," 
Coach Jim Harrison stated. "It 
has really given me the chance to 
evaluate and predict the 
potential talents we can expect as 
a team next spring." 

The men's tennis team finished 
their fall schedule with a team 
record of matches (4-4), and the 
Ladies' tennis team (5-4). The 
tennis teams will have some 
tough competition against the 
University of Arkansas and 
Northwest Louisiana next spring 
for the men, and the College of 
Charlestown and Grand Canyon 
College for the ladies. 

A stronger and more in depth 
team is foreseen with the new 
talent added to both teams; 
Ladies - Macy Evert and Lynn 
Hanson, Men - David Cockrill, 
Phillip Sanov, and Tom Morsey. 

Coach Harrison is pleased with 

the men's doubles combinations. 
Their strongest doubles are: Joe 
Prather-Shawn Livesay and 
Terry Dalzell-Pat Downs. Terry 
Dalzell is making excellent 
progress after recovering from 
two knee operations and has been 
consistent in his wins (6-2). Joe 
Prather had won six straight 
matches until his loss against 
Baylor in the Tyler Tournament. 
David Cockrill is the most im- 
proved freshman and expected to 
be an asset to the team with his 

The Ladies team is working 
well with each other and is very 
strong with their doubles: 
fammie Kelley-Macy Evert and 
Edie Carel-Sandy MacMillan. 
Much improvement has been 
seen in the Ladies' singles, 
Cynthia Vanderslice has 
developed a steady hold on her 
wins against higher competition, 
moving from position No. 6-No. 2. 

Macy Evert, ranked 15th in the 
NAIA, moved from position No. 
5-No. 1. Doubles partners Sandy 
MacMillan and Edie Carel are 
both All-American. 

Coach Harrison will continue to 
work with different combinations 
to determine the most effective, 
and to develop consistency and 
competitiveness in the young 
players. If the fall is any in- 
dicator of the developing talent 
the spring should prove to be a 
winning season.

What's coming December 3rd? 

Lately I have seen these really 
simple and seemingly unob- 
trusive little signs that say IT'S 
Well, I have been asking myself, 
"What's coming December 
3rd?" Is it coming to a theater 
near you, or is it an attempt, by 
Grenadian rebels, to scare us 
with an upcoming invasion of our 
cafeteria? Possibly it is the day 
when the street next to Frater- 
nity Row is paved properly, or 
could it be the day when all 

students are released early for 
Christmas because we have been 
so good this year? 

Well, I know how hard it is to 
realize that none of those things 
are coming on December 3rd; 
but have no fear! Something IS 
coming on Dec. 3rd. Guess what 
it is! No! That's wrong! No! Not 
that either! Well, alright, I'll tell 
you. It's .... It's .... SATUR- 
DAY!!!!! and Homecoming. 

For the past month the Alumni 
Office, now headed by Nancy 

Gerding, has been working hard 
to put together our homecoming. 
They have recently sent out 
flyers to all of the college's 8,000 
alums across the country. 
Because of all of the controversy 
concerning this year's 
homecoming, Nancy and her 
staff have had to fight an uphill 
battle in changing opinions and 
attitudes towards this special 
occasion and dher office. They 
have been forced to create new 
ideas and methods of generating 

Centenary Athletics 

— "Unknowe, unkist, and lost 
that is unsought." — 


The Conglomerate, as your 
source of campus information 
realizes that facts unknown are 
dangerous. They lead to 
misunderstandings and un- 
fortunate conflicts. It was the 
opinion of many that there is a 
grave lack of knowledge con- 
cerning the Athletic Department. 
Consequently we have decided to 
run an article to clear up some 

Centenary Athletics, headed by 
Mr. Walt Stephens, consists of six 
varsity men's sports (Baseball, 
Basketball, Crosscountry, Golf, 
Soccer, and dTennis); four 
varsity women's sports 
(Basketball, Crosscountry, 
Gymanstics, Tennis); and two 
co-ed sports (Riflery & 
Volleyball). There are a total of 
132 students (6.75 percent) from 
the undergraduate student body 
participating in the athletic 
program at Centenary. The 
men's program is associated 
with the National Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics (NCAA) 
in the Division I category. The 
women's program belongs to the 
National Association of In- 
tercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) 
District 30. 

The men's program, because it 
is in Division I of the NCAA must 
maintain at least 8 different 
men's sports. All eight of Cen- 
tenary's men's sports are in the 

Trans-American Athletic Con- 
ference (TAAC). We compete 
with nine other schools in this for 
the conference title and op- 
portunities to play in NCAA 
Division I tournaments in each 
sport. In the TAAC Centenary is 
opposed by Nichols State 
University, Northwestern State 
University of LA., University of 
Arkansas at Little Rock, Georgia 
Southern, Georgia State at 
Atlanta, Hardin-Simmons 
University, Houston Baptist, 
Mercer, and Sanford. This spring 
the conference will dramatically 
change after Nichols State and 
Northwestern drop to enter a 
special division of the NCAA for 
collegiate football. However, 
Centenary will remain the 
smallest school in the con- 
ference. Now, you may ask, 
"Why aren't the women's sports 

in the NCAA?" Centenary's 
reasoning behind their decision 
to enter the NAIA is quite 
reasonable and logical. In the 
NAIA Centenary competes with 
predominantly small religious- 
affiliated schools (e.i. .. schools 
with the basic make-up similar to 
Centenary) and is not required to 
maintain a certain number of 
female sports to remain in the top 
division; as is the case with 
Division I NCAA. Each college in 
the NAIA can choose as many 
women's sports as they want and 
compete at any level they want in 
their district. 

It was interesting to learn all of 
the facts concerning the 
technicalities of the Athletics 
department, but the most in- 
teresting facts I learned, con- 
cerned Athletic Finances.

and maintaining alumni, faculty, 
community, and last but not 
least, student enthusiasm. The 
events that have been planned, 
promise to be exciting, com- 
petitive, and spirited. 

The day will begin, bright and 
early, at 9:00 a.m. At this time, 
the Banner Contest and the 
Decorating Contest will be 
judged. Entries in each of these 
contests must be finished and 
entered by 4:00 p.m. on Friday. 
kAll organizations on campus 
may enter ( from SGA & Senate to 
Administration & Alumni) both 
contests. The organizations off 
campus, e.i. fraternities & 
sororities, will be judged in a 
totally different division. 

The entries for the banner 
contest are encouraged to make 
banners that are colorful, 
spirited, and unique. These 
banners will be hung in the Gold 
Dome on Friday in preparation 
for the game on Saturday. As 
well, the banner should in some 
way or another, denote the 
organization that made it. It is 
highly important that this par- 
ticular contest depict the spirit 
and pride of Centenary; for these 
are the banners that will be our 
"welcoming committee" to our 

The Decorating Contest is a 
contest based upon talent 
ingenuity, and originality. This 
contest is also between the 
various groups on campus 
related to student activities or 

alumni and administration. The 
groups can decorate doors or 
other parts of the buildings on 
campus (further details will be 
provided later). The entire 
purpose of this contest is to 
promote spirit on and off cam- 
pus. With so much color and 
activity on campus, people will 
begin to wonder what's going on. 
Hey! Something is going on at 
Centenary! This contest should 
also be completed and entered by 
4:00 p.m. on Friday. 

There will be awards for the 
top three placings in each contest 
and division. 
1st - $150.00 
2nd - $50.00. 
3rd - $25.00. 

Later in the day, the Alumni 
will celebrate a pre-game party 
at Craft Alliance for the faculty, 
alumni, and administration. The 
party will be hosted by the 
Alumni Board and served by the 
Maroon Jackets. 

The homecoming game bet- 
ween Centenary and North Texas 
State University will begin at 
7:45 in the Gold Dome. The 
homecoming court will be 
presented and the queen will be 
crowned at half-time. At about 
10:00 there will be a dance in an 
already decorated Haynes Gym. 
Further details, regulations, and 
announcements will be provided 
in the later issue. However

Pegasus is going to be different 

by Alyce Boudreaux 
It began when Centenary's 
English Dept. saw the need for a 
booklet which would display 
student writings. Since, it has 
emerged into a collaboration of 
poetry, prose, and short stories, 
as well as photographs and art- 
work. The magazine is 
recognized and funded by the 
SGA as an essential aspect of 
student life. With a new editor 

and staff, this year's Pegasus 
promises to be better than ever. 
In previous years, Pegasus has 
been a rather controversial issue. 
In fact, last year's first issue was 
run on a trial basis, and in the 
event of a negative student 
response, would have been 
terminated. The main problem 
with the Pegasus was that it 
centered upon the works of a very 
few authors. Generally speaking. 


Dear Editor. 

I am writing in response to 
"Name Withheld by Request" 
who attacked the Student Life 
Committee's nominations of 
"questionable, almost 
laughable..." candidates to 
"Who's Who" in last week's 
respect "Name Withheld's" right 
to express his opinion. I dislike 
the sour tone of his letter. For 
example, he seems to feel 
resentment toward those can- 
didates who were nominated: 
this stark negativism is certainly 
out of place on our campus. While 
some people may have been, as 
lie said, "far more deserVmi* of 
such high recognition ...." why 
can't he have the Christian love 

and charity to congratulate those 
who were nominated? Almost all 
of this year's nominations were 
personal friends of mine and 
their nomination to "Who's Who" 
makes me even more proud to 
have their acquaintances. 

In closing, even though we all 
may not have the same abilities, 
opportunities, and backgrounds, 
we should support one another in 
this tiny microcosm we call 
Centenary. It will make us strong 
as individuals and as a college. 
And one way to start is with a 
posilivc attitude something 

"Name Withheld" should do.

Pegasus was not a cross section 
of the talent of Centenary's 
campus, but a reflection of the 
works of the Pegasus staff. 

This year's Pegasus is striving 
to be different. This is due largely 
to the efforts of the new editor. 
Brad Hoge. Hoge himself has had 
some of his works published in 
former issues of Pegasus, and, 
his freshman year at Centenary, 
was the winner of the cover 

contest. His efforts this year have 
largely been concentrated on 
getting a variety of submissions. 
He has printed letters asking for 
contributions and had them 
distributed by English 
professors, placed posters 
around campus, and approached 
individuals about submitting 
their works. Editor Hoge stated 
his position, "I'm aware of the 
talent on this campus, and am 

eager to see those talents in print. 
The artists deserve recognition." 
The SGA is in full support of 
Hoge's efforts and are anxious to 
see the results of his laborious 
endeavors. If you are interested 
in having your works published in 
Pegasus, submit your works to 
Hoge or any member of the 
Pegasus staff by the 15th. You too 
deserve recognition. 

Senate Minutes 

By Clay Robertson 

This column represents a 
reporting of the Senate meeting 
of November 15, 1983, and should 
not be considered the official 
minutes of the Senate. 

The Senate meeting of 
November 15 was called to order 
by Vice President Alyce 
Boudreaux at 11:10 a.m., and the 
minutes of the previous meeting 
were approved thereafter. 

Tuesday, the Senate from its 
Standing Committee on En- 
tertainment and its Ad Hoc 
Committees on the Housing 
Situation, the Panel Discussion of 
Central American affairs, and 
Dorm Telephone Service En- 
tertainment Committee chair- 
man Michael Hayes reported 
that Fall Ball had cost less than 
$3500, and that Le Bos'sier had 
asked for payment for a mirror 

broken Saturday night. Ad- 
dressing the issue of the mirror 
Dean of Students Dick Anders, 
said that the College was filing an 
insurance claim to pay for the 
mirror, but asked the S.G.A. to 
pay for the mirror, and be 
reimbursed when, and if, the 
insurance company honored the 
claim. Senator Laura Echols of 
the Senior Housing Situation 
Committee showed the article 
that had appeared in THE 
situation and reported that 
survey returns were still quite 
low. Senator Susan Scott an- 
nounced that the panel discussion 
on Central America was changed 
to November 29. so Congressman 
"Buddy" Roemer would be able 
to attend. Regarding the long 
distance telephone situation. 
Senator Bill Ball reported that 
any changes in Centenary's basic 

telephone system would be 
"years down the road." 

Under "Old Business," the 
Senate discussed the LSU-S 
football game and Homecoming. 
Senator Ron Whitler announced 
that the LSU-S football tour- 
nament would be at 1:00 p.m., 
Sunday, November 20, at LSU-S. 
After a short floor discussion 
Tuesday, the Senate approved a 
donation to Nancy Gerding for 

Tuesday, under "New 
Business," the Senate heard 
from Senator Brad Lyon about 
the Emergency Reference List, 
prepared as a result of the Mickle 
disaster, and Kathy Heard, about 
a panel discussion following the 
movie "The Day After," Sunday 

The Senate meeting of 
November 15, 1983 was adjourned 
at 11:35 a.m. 

Words from Wonderland 

By Betsy Camp 

Have you noticed the abun- 
dance of small, furry creatures 
living on campus? No. I'm not 
talking about freshmen. I'm 
talking about SQUIRRELS, those 
petite things that romp across the 
campus. To all appearances, 
these are happy-go-lucky 
animals without a care in the 
world. But I have learned the 
truth. This may sicken the ten- 
der-hearted and shock the rest of 
us. but these squirrels have been 
sent here for rehabilitation. They 

Last week, with the aid of a 
cleverly constructed costume. I 
infiltrated the sordid world of 
Centenary Squirrels and 
researched their society There 
are a few distinct groups of 
squirrels to be found. There are: 
Punks. Greasers, and some 
"religious" sqirrrels. The 
"religious" squirrels follow 
"Papa" Sqelrrel Nyun Acorn, a 
Korean squirrel, who claims to 
bo the Messiah. He employs 
thousands of squirrels in his 

hideous empire. He brainwashes 
them and forces them to sell oak 
leaves to unwary passers-by. I 
was lucky < ? ) enough to be able to 
observe a meeting of these 

The Cornies meet in a 
hollowed-out oak tree in a remote 
corner of the campus. They sit on 
their haunches and beam blankly 
at each other and speak of raising 
money for "Papa" as if it were 
more fun than Quarter Beer 
Night. They scream in ecstasy 
when "Papa Acorn" speaks to 
them. The night I attended, it was 
rudely interrupted by a group of 
Punk Squirrels. 

The Punks are led by a wicked- 
looking squirrel who calls 
himself. "Johnny Root-Rot." 
Johnny is totally furless except 
for a one-inch strip of short, 
green fur running down his back 
He wears a tiny squirrel safety- 
pin through his tiny squirrel- 
cheek He sings for a band called 
the "Dead Squirrel Kennedys." 
His pack of punks is probably the 
most vile group of animals ever 

to exist. If Johnny had seen 
through my clever diguise, I 
would have been pelted with 
acorns until I was dead. 

The other group of 
frighteningly deviant squirrels 
are the Greasers. They call 
themselves the "Stray 
Squirrels." Engaging in 
ferocious battles with the Punks 
is their favorite amusement. The 
fur on their heads is styled 
outlandishly into pompadours. 
Sometimes, when the night is 
particularly quiet, you can hear 
them riding their motorcycles 
along the sidewalks. 

What, you may ask, is being 
done about this profusion of 
deviant squirrels? Well, there 
are a few correctional officers 
who keep these criminal-types 
under control. However, you may 
want to take a great deal of care 
when walking the campus at 
night. You may be attacked by a 
marauding band of Punk or 
Greaser squirrels. 

P. S. Don't buy any oak leaves 
from strange squirrels.

Centenary Athletics operates on 
a $450,000 budget annually. This 
figure, surprisingly small, covers 
athletic staff salaries, travel 
expenses, medical insurance 
deductables, awards, recruiting, 
advertising, referee's salaries, 
student help, competition ap- 
pointment guarantees, utilities, 
equipment, materials & supplies, 
and maintainence. The com- 
petition appointment guarantees 
are those financial "assurances" 
that are paid when Centenary 
plays certain schools in the Gold 
Dome. Centenary is required to 
pay $800.00 for NCAA dues; 
$7,500.00 for TAAC dues in ad- 
dition to its operational costs.

However the Athletic 
Department pays its own way to 
a large extent. It is mutually 
agreed by most, that Basketball 
is kCentenary's king of sports. 
Throughout the basketball 
season, the Gents are expected to 
generate about $155,000 in 
guaranteed income from ticket 
and concessions sales; not to 
mention the competition ap- 
pointment guarantees that are 
paid to us for appearing at other 
schools. The department is ex- 
pected to acquire $35,000.00 just 
for the Gent's appearances in two 
tournaments and a game against 
Kansas State. In addition, if the 
Gents win the conference title, 
then Centenary will receive an 
additional $30,000 for publicity 
rights. However, the basketball

If you are looking for a real 
treat for a different lunch, try 
Los Amigos in Mall St. Vincent. 
Los Amigos is a terrific Mexican 
restaurant and is very 
reasonably priced. They offer 
several lunch specials ranging 
from taco salad to enchiladas. 
One may choose a delightful 
chicken chimichanga or superb 
nachos. One of the dinner com- 
binations is also a good choice. 
The refried beans and rice are 
some of the best in town. One of 
our favorites is the combination 

plate. This dinner consists of a 
miniature taco, enchilada, beef 
chimichanga smothered in 
guacamole and sour cream, 
refried beans, and rice. 

If you're not hungry for a 
complete meal, Los Amigos is a 
great place for chips, picante 
sauce, and margaritas! Los 
Amigos opens at 11:00 a.m. daily 
and is open until 9:00 p.m. week- 
days and until 10:00 p.m. Friday 
and Saturdays. They do not 
accept checks but Visa and 
Mastercard credit cards are 
welcome. So, if you feel a little 
"South-of-the-border" at lunch 
time, why not get "AROUND 
TOWN" to Los Amigos?

we extend our thanks to all who 
came out and chowed on the 
spaghetti. Both the Alkies and 
KA I have squeaked their ways 

into the volleyball playoffs. The 
Alkies had the most impressive 
victory by defeating the Buffalos 
in an exciting three game match. 
The Alkies just didn't know they 
were supposed to lose, let alone 
play with only six people on the 
court! We need all the luck in the 
world to continue our winning 
ways this week. A belated thanks 
goes out to Dick Anders and the 
administration who made our 
"Ceremonial Canon Firing- 
Detour One Block" signs. All we 
need now is to teach the pledges 
which way to point the detour 
arrows! A semi-private flathead 
meeting was conducted by the G. 
F. himself Mike Talley. who 
managed to desrot many a brain 
cell last Friday! We hope to have 
a few more because we are all 
getting too smart! The KA's are 
taking up donat ions for our "Save 
the Turkey" Foundation before 
poor old Mr. Turkey gets gobbled 
up! We feel it's our duty to feel 
sorry for the big bird, since he is 
manslaughtered every year at 
this time! Despite all this, 
Turkey and Coke sounds really 
good! Everyone have a good 
Thanksgiving because finals are 
just around the corner ready to 
spoil your Christmas! 
Bye-ya St it ay a!

A good time was had by all at 
The Farm, otherwise known as 
Stigg's Place. Of 320 acres of 
fabulous trees, only two dead 
pines were left standing. Omar 
Arouba swung his mighty axe 
like a real pro, as did all the 
pledges, and some of us were 
even impressed. O. C. managed 
to escape the law after exposing 
himself to a Ford station wagon 
filled to the brim with nuns in full 
habits. D. W. said that nothing O. 
C. could do would surprise him. 
Except maybe a midnite trip to a 
local bar where the men dress as 
women, dance with each other, 
and slap each others' bottoms. 
That's sick. Lulu! 

We're all looking forward to 
Zeta Swamp this weekend. If 
you're real lucky you'll be on 
their invite-list. 

Coming up Wednesday is the 
annual Paddle Party. Mr. Terry,

We would all like to welcome 
our good friend J. B. back to

parently much needed break

home from H.. and the return of 
Serena to the world of literature! 


Congratulations are in order to 
John Yianitas and Dawn Calhoun 
for being voted to this years 
Pacesetters. Upon questioning 
about the award Johnny Y. said 
he was "completely surprised" 
and had "no idea." He also said 
that he would like to go on to 
regional Pacesetters and 
perhaps compete on a national

that I have your attention, I 
would like to thank all of you for 
making Fall Ball a great success. 
Everyone seemed to be enjoying 
themselves, especially a certain 
frat whose initals are KA. Once 
again they displayed their grace 
and skill on the dance floor; Fred

jealous. Congrats also to the Fall

We have many activities 
planned before you rush off for

Gents working hard towards 
date with Cowboys 

Season opens 

The 1983-84 collegiate 
basketball season is rapidly 
approaching and with It the 
Centenary Gentlemen are 
preparing for their opener 
against the Cowboys of 
Oklahoma State at 7:45 p.m., 
Saturday, November 26. 

The Gents are coming off a 
very impressive Monday night 
workout after taking the weekend 
off. "This is probably our best 
workout of the season." head 
coach Tommy Canterbury said 
following the late night workout. 
The Gents began practice at 8 
p.m. on Monday because of labs. 

"Basically we have put in 
everything that we want to put 
in," assistant coach Greg 
Haddox added, "and now its time 
to start polishing up and find the 
guys who are going to con- 

The Gents have worked hard on 
their pressure man to man and 
running game. Reginald Mosby 
has looked impressive at the 
point guard position. "We felt it 
was important to work on our 
running game as much as 
possible," coach Haddox added. 
"We lost four year letterman 
Napoleon Byrdsong at the point. 
Offensively we're going to be 


With less than two weeks left 
until the season opener, the Gents 
still need a lot of work on defense. 
"Our defense needs a lot of 
work," coach Canterbury in- 
serted. "We are so small that it is 
going to be important that we 
play good defense to win. But, we 
have outstanding athletes with 
good strength and speed." 

The Gentlemen will spend the 
next ten days working on their 
man t o man pressure and 2-3 zone 
pressure defenses, with some full 
court man to man pressure. At 
this juncture the offense is way 
ahead of the defense. 

If you're going to see the home 
team play this year, you better 
come early. The Gents open the 
season with five straight home 
games, beginning with Oklahoma 
State, followed by Central 
Florida University, SMU, North 
Texas State, and end with 1-20 
rival Louisiana Tech, all within 
an 11 day stint. 

Afterwards, the Gents go on the 
road and do not return to the Gold 
Dome until January 12 when they 
meet Hardi n-Sim mons 
University in their third Trans 
America Athletic Conference 
(TAAC) game of the season. 

The Gents will play in two 
tournaments this year, the first 
the Champions Classic in; 
Missoula, Montana where the 
Gents will face Cal-State 
Fullerton in game one. The 
Titans are ranked 12th 
nationally. The University of 
Montana and Tennessee Tech 
will play in game two. 

Afterwards, the Gents will play 
in the Dallas Morning News 
Classic. Centenary opens the 
tournament with Arizona State. 
SMU and the University of New 
Orleans will play in game two. 

Rifle team places fifth 

Four of five starters confirmed 

There is still one position up for 
grabs when the Gents take to the 
tartan surface in the Gold Dome 
Nov. 26. For sure. Willie 
.lajckson. a preseason All- 
American choice, will start at 
one forward, while Albert 
Thomas will be at the small 
forward. At center. Eric "Bad 
News" Bonner will start, and 
Reginald Mosby. a junior college 
transfer will handle the point 
guard position. 

But there is going to be a war 
for the second guard spot. "If I 
had to name somebody today, I 
would have to go with Russell 
Taylor." Canterbury said, "but, 
you can't count out Vance 

Taylor, a 6-0 senior from 
Bossier City. Louisiana, has 
improved a lot over the summer. 
"Russell is intelligent and can 
shoot it in," Canterbury said. 
"His defense is sound and he is 

very competitive." Another 
candidate for the second guard 
position is freshman standout 
Andrew Dewberry. 

Dewberry needs time to 
develop, but by Christmas he 
could be starting. Others who 
have looked impressive are Tom 
Schmidt. Rodney Bailey, and 
Michael Bell. Schmidt and Bailey 
have been working at both guard 
positions, while Bell has been 
working at both forward and 

Centenary's Rifle Team placed 
fifth in their first postal match of 
the fall '83 season. Hosting the 
twelve team match was the 
University of New Orleans ROTC 
and the UNO Rifle Team. Placing 
first was the University of 
Kentucky Team No. 1 (1079), 
second - Kansas State University 
(1043). third - University of 
Kentucky Team No 2 (1032), 
fourth - Virginia Military In- 
stitute (1021). fifth - Centenary 
College (999), sixth - Southeast 
Louisiana University (958). 

The Rifle Team travelled to 
Huntsville where they par- 

ticipated in the Rodeo Match at 
Sam Houston State University. 
Centenary placed sixth in the, 
fifteen team match with 3936 
points out of a possible 4800 
points. First place was awarded 
to Texas A & M Team No. 1 
(4387), second - UT Austin (4320), 
third - Texas A & M Team No. 2 
(4148). fourth - UT Arlington 
Team No. 1 (4088), fifth - NSU 
Team No. 1 (4073). 

The highest scoring individual 
shooters are: Adam Harbuck - 
( 1 005 ) , Steve Watson - ( 985 ) , Rick 
Kaiser - (984), and Chris Ed- 
wards - (962).

Christmas Traditions Celebrated 


Well my friends, that i time of 
year has arrived! "Jingle Bells, 
Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way, 
... Deck the halls with boughs of 
holly ... Hark the herald. Angels 
sing . . . Silent Night, Holy Night . . . 
etc ..." Have you ever wondered 
why we celebrate Crhistmas or 
where it came from? 

Christmas is an annual holiday 
celebrated world-wide by many 
varing cultures and societies. It 
is celebrated by the Christian 
church on December 25 to 
commemorate the birth of 
Christ. It's origins are, to this 
day. unknown. However, some 
scholars associate its beginnings 
with pre : Christian rites of 
Germanic and Celtic tribesmen. 
They commemorated the "Yule" 
or winter solstice with many 
festive and enthusiastic 
celebrations. This term, "Yule," 
still used in some dialects of 
Scotland and northern England 
today, refers to the turning of the 
sun northward at the winter 
solstice. Yule derives from 
Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian 
w ords meaning a winter feast 
faring the months of December 

and January. The festival was 
marked by huge bonfires and 
burning logs. After their con- 
version to Christianity, the 
Germans incorporated the old 
Teutonic customs into the new 
Christian celebration. Christ- 
mas, observed as a Christian 
holiday since the 4th century 
A.D., still includes heathern 
customs such as: the use of holly, 
mistletoe, and wassail bowls. Our 
modern concept of Christmas 
trees was most probably 
acquired from pre-Christian 
Roman society. 

Christmas has developed 
universally as a time of secular 
and social significance. It is 
expressed in many ways with the 
exchanging of gifts (a tradition 
based upon the gifts of the 3 wise 
men) and greeting cards, not to 
mention the suspension of school 
and work. We have further ob- 
tained the custom of Santa Claus, 
firmly professed by all American 
children, from the Dutch 
celebration of St. Nicholas Day 
on Christmas eve. The Dutch St. 
Nicholas does not guide a red 
sleigh or 13 reindeers. Instead he 
arrives in a glittering gold 

I gondola-type craft at each city in 
the Netherlands (or so the old 
legend goes). As well the Jewish 
people have for centuries 
celebrated a winter holiday in its 
Hanukkah festivites. 

Regardless of its origins, 
Christmas remains a significant 
social holiday. Christmas is a 
time of love, joy, festivity, 
brotherhood, unity, sharing, and 
peace. It is a time for us to be 
with family and friends, as it 
should be. Many have remarked, 
how happy and cheerful people 
seem to be this holiday season in 
comparison to those of past 
seasons. They have commented 
on the sincere kindness and 
compassion that people are 
expressing. As well, even more 
have described the pure sense of 
hope and festivity that is in the f 
air. Someone once said, "Let 
every day be like Christmas!" 
Live every day this holiday 
season and coming year be like 
Christmas! % 

We of the Conglomerate staff 
wish all of our Centenary family 
a Merry Christmas! Peace be 
with vou all!

front of our very noses. Look 
back! Since the beginning of

school have you found this inner 
peace? Most of us could not 
truthfully answer yes. We rarely 
take time to "Stop and smell the 
roses" of life. We hardly ever sit 
down on a clear bright blue day 
and listen for birds singing in the 
trees above. It is rare that we 
listen for the things we never 
hear: grasshoppers, the wind, 
rain drops, clocks ticking, leaves, 
trees, and just plain silence. In 
our modern world we are told 
that these things are silly or 
wierd. ARE THEY? Most of the 
time we never take the time to 
listen for peace because we are 
too busy in our world of hustle 
and bustle! It is this little spark 
of silence or peace that very few 
of us ever light in our lives that 
can make the world difference! It 
can create a fire in us that only 
burns and kindles for eternity. As 
Robert Frost once wrote. 

"I shall be telling this with a 
sigh somewhere ages and ages 
hence: Two roads diverged in a 
wood and M took the one less 
traveled by, and that has made 
all the difference." 
It is the "road less traveled by" 
that Christ took. And it is that 
small spark that furiously burned, 
in His heart that He gave when 
He said, "Peace be with you. My 
peace be with you." It is neither 
missies nor money nor demon- 
strations nor summits, not even 
Christian morals that will bring 
peace. Yet, it is the inner hearts 
of men that will eventually 
conquer human confrontation. 
We, together Americans and 
Russians, Arabs and Jews. 
Communists and Republicans 
Blacks and Whites, with God. 
must light that little spark and 
take that road less traveled by or 
be captiula ted into oblivion.

Senate Minutes 

Dear Editor, 

I am the "fated" ex-publicity 
chairman and did not appreciate 
the Conglomerate unnecessarily 
lengthened "Senate Minutes" 
column in the Nov. 3 issue. 

Typically, the job was not fully 
outlined before I took the 
position. Certain members of the 
SGA were supposed to contact 
me with information concerning 
a campus function, allowing me 
ample time for my job, and then 
allowing students the time to 
make or not make plans to at- 
tend. Due to poor organization 
with the SGA and repeated short 
notice my performance was 

I wish the future Publicity 
Chairman luck and satisfaction 
from the SGA members. Perhaps 
the paycheck for their portion of 
the semester will be punctual; I 
was unable to get mine requested 
until 13 days after the 
Conglomerate's coverage. 
Support Student Government. 

— Mitchell Pengra 

To the Editor: 

I would like to take this op- 
portunity to express thanks to all 
of the volunteers — over ninety of 
them— who made our Fall 
Phonathon a success. The group 

attempted and made calls to 
nearly 3,000 Centenary alumni, 
eliciting specific pledges totaling 
over $15,000, and many thousands 
more in unspecific pledges 
(where exact figures were 
withheld) and company mat- 
ching funds, plus further sums 
from the $100,000 challenge, 
which will double the many 
qualifying gifts! We are well on 
the way to raising the goal of 
$700,000 for this year's Great 
Teachers-Scholars Fund. 

Thanks specifically to the Chi 
Omega pledges, Zeta Tau Alpha 
pledges, and actives of both 
sororities; to the Theta Chi 
fraternity; an to the numerous 
other individuals who volunteer 
their time, especially to Lisa 
Illing who spearheaded the 
recruitment. You made it work. 

A second Phonathon session 
will be conducted early in the 
Spring. We hope some of you will 
come back and help again, and 
that others will join in. Still, we 
couldn't ask for a more willing, 
energetic, diligent, or nicer 
bunch of folks than you were. 

Sincere thanks

Senate Minutes 
by Clay Robertson 

This column represents a 
reporting of the Senate meeting 
of November 29, 1983, and should 
not be considered the official 
minutes of the Senate. 

The Senate meeting of 
November 29, 1983 was called to 
order by President Thrundotte 
Baughman at 11:13 a.m. The 
minutes of the previous Senate 
meeting were approved shortly 
thereafter with only minor 
revisions and no reports from 

Tuesday the Senate heard from 
its ad hoc committee regarding 

Senator Susan Scott's Panel 
Discussion. The discussion on the 
matter centered on the details of 
the agenda and the lack of 
publicity regarding the Panel 

The November 29 meeting 
represented the last of this fall's 
media sessions, with reports 
from Yoncopin editor Dawn 
Calhoun, and Conglomerate 
editor Lea Ann Burelbach. 

Under "Old Business," the 
Senate discussed the regulations 
concerning the placement of 
directional signs along 1-20 for 
the college. Discussion concluded 
with the suggestion to talk to 
Congressman Roemer about the 

Under "New Business," the 
Senate heard from Dean of 
Students Anders and Senator Bob 
Thomas. Dean Anders an- 
nounced that in the Spring Long 
Distance Service would be en- 
tering the dorm, making for a 
change in long distance service 
for students. Senator Bob 
Thomas then delivered a speech 
in favor of changing the S.G.A. 
Constitution, so S.G.A. members 
can be members of their dor- 
mitory's Dorm Council. The 
Senate passed Senator Thomas's 
resolution, which will require a 
student vote in the Spring to take 

The Senate of the Fall of 1983 
then adjourned at 11:55 a.m. 

Housing Problem Shelved 

After reviewing all the facts 
concerning seniors having a 
choice to live on campus or off 
campus, the S.G.A. decided to not 
make a proposal. The primary 
reason for the decision was that 
with only 25 percent of the 
housing surveys returned, the 
estimation of financial loss to the 
college would be inaccurate and 
very slanted. The students who 
returned the surveys are 
primarily those who would 
consider moving off campur. 
Thus, the monetary figure would 
be against the S.G.A. in any such 

Dick Anders, the Dean of 

Students, expressed the other 
considerations that needed 
reviewing. First, the amount of 
money lost by such a proposal 
would increase the amount of 
money that on-campus students 
would be paying. This is a surely 
economical consideration. It is 
possible that if a large freshman 
class entered the college, this 
would take care of itself. 
However, enrollment for private 
institutions is going down rather 
than up. 

A second consideration ex- 
pressed was the possibility of 
having to close Hardin Hall. The 
reason for this would also be one 

of economics. Most of the girls 
presently living in Hardin are 
Seniors and might conceivably 
move off campus. Others could 
move into Hardin but that would 
leave empty rooms in James. In 
essence, for the cost of heating, 
cooling, and electricity all girls 
would live in Sexton or James 
and there might not be an honor 
girls' dorm. 

These are just a few of the 
major considerations. The S.G.A. 
felt a stronger need to represent 
the on-campus students at this 
point and protect them from 
higher tuition or meal plan costs. 
Talk to your Senators if you have 
questions or further concerns. 

Words from Wonderland 

By Betsy Camp 

What are you doing Friday 
night? Going to a party? Going 
out with friends? OR... do you 
have a date? Dates are a 
ridiculous A merican 
phenomenon. Wheather you 
realize it or not, dating is not a 
natural instinct. It is forced upon 
us by a cruel and unusual society. 
That's why some of us— when we 
get the occasional date— make a 
shambles of this social duty. 

I have never been successful in 
the world of dating. My first "car 
date" was a complete wreck- 
literally. My parents almost 
disowned me when my date came 
to the door. His hair was well 
below his shoulders, and his car 
belonged to a junkyard. The 
female half of the couple we 
"doubled" with had sneaked out 
of her house to go on this date— a 
terrible mistake. 

Everything went very well 
until the drive home. As we were 
barreling down the freeway, we 
heard a sreaching noise, the car 
jerked violently, and we came to 

a very sudden stop. We all 
thought is was a flat until my 
date announced that the entire 
wheel had come off the car. 

I didn't get home for my 
midnight curfew and it took my 
mother a year to believe that 
story. It didn't even matter that 
the car blew up the next day. 

But high school dates are less 
formal and serious than college 
dates. And the problems are 
more severe. 

The first problem is, of course, 
getting a date. Some people have 
as many dates as they desire. But 
most of us watch Love Boat every 
Saturday night. I can tell you 
what's happened on almost every 
episode since its debut. (I missed 
one or two shows when my 
mother made my cousin take me 
to my Senior Prom and 
Homecoming. ) 

Once you men have obtained 
the unobtainable— a date— you 
worry about where you are going 
to go. Does she like live music? 
What movies has she not seen? 
Does she like bowl drinks? If you 

take her to a Mexican 
Restaurant, you can be sure she 
will be allergic to chili peppers. If 
you take her to a movie, she will 
want to see Richard Gere more 
than she will want to see you. And 
if you take her to a bar, she will 
probably tell you that she is a 

Girls worry about different 
things. The most pressing 
question is that of clothing. Don't 
worry anymore. No matter 
where you go, you will be under- 
dressed. If you wear jeans, he'll 
take you to the beach. If you weal" 
a dress, he'll take you to a 
football game.. .in the rain. 

Of course, there are unex- 
pected problems such as: when 
he tells you that your perfume 
reminds him of his mother or that 
his ten-year-old sister has a dress 
just like tht one you're wearing 
And guys, if you really like a gui 
she'll probably tell you that hef 
ex-boyfriend was a better kisser 

All in all, dating is a drag. B^ 
is can be fun once you overcorn e 
all of its drawbacks. So, if thef* 
are any free guys out there... 

Nuclear Tidings 

Thursday, December 1, 1983— CONGLOMERATE— Page 3 

By Tom Ufert 

How appropriate, that the 
Sunday before Thanksgiving at 
the beginning of our holiday 
season. THE DAY AFTER 
should appear upon our tv 
screens. Public controversy 
centered on the movie's special 
effects and radical viewpoints. It 
was the first time that such 
issues had been raised on such a 
public level ; Is nuclear war truly 
survivable; will it happen; could 
it happen; how do we avoid its 
irreversible results. It is un- 
fortunate that ABC attempted to 
make "a Killing" from its ex- 
clusive rights to the film. 
However, their special Viewpoint 
program afterwards should be 
highly commended. Some im- 
portant points brought about by 

the film and the distinguised 
panel on Viewpoint should be 

Political rashness could lead to 
human extinction. The break- 
down of Detente' and arms 
limitations talk can lead to a lack 
of knowledge and trust. This gap 
in communication leads to fear 
which in turn leads to rash ac- 

Staunch beliefs in ideologies 
and political goals can lead to 
stubborn antagonism and 
agression. Why can't com- 
munisim and capitalism live 
side-by-side in peace. They have 
lived with each other for 66 years. 

Deradicalization of "Hotspots" 
around the world could only aid 
the peace process. This move 
requires patience, compromise, 

negotiation, and time. 

Not only the people and nations 
of the Soviet Union and the 
United States will suffer from a 
nuclear confrontation. The 
results of such a cataclysmic 
epoch in human history would be 
irreversible. Besides for those 
few thousands of human beings 
that survive an all out nuclear 
war and the radiation af- 
terwards, what will they do? The 
radioactive emissions from so 
many nuclear explosions will do 
untold damage. Remember the 
weather changes caused by Mt. 
St. Helens*' Multiply that by a 
thousand mcs! A "Nuclear 
Winter" will result and place the 
planet in a nuclear ice-age. The 
Radiation will radically destroy, 
in a short time, the O Zone layer 
around the earth. Once this layer 
is gone the earth will be left 
defenseless to solar radiation. 

This radiation will burn all 
vegetation in the areas un- 
touched by nuclear radiation. 
The wind and rains of the globe 
will spread the radiation from the 
devastated areas. As well, the 
gravitational balance of our 
planet will be knocked out of line 
to such a great degree, that the 
results cannot even be deter- 
mined. The film was very 
generous and conservative in its 
account of a nuclear aftermath. 
Let us consider the area 
discussed; Kansas & Missouri. 
That area, because of the number 
of missle silos would be com- 
pletely obliterated. The East and 
West coasts would also be 
devastated. Anyone surviving the 
initial blasts in these areas, 
would not live more than 48 hours 
because of the nuclear fallout. 
Let us have no fear, a nuclear 
war is possible. With the growing 

controversy over U.S. 
deployment of Pershing and 
Cruise missies in Western 
Europe, the possibility of nuclear 
war is only hightened. What 
game are we playing where we 
will accept 20 million casulties 
and the Russians will accept 40 
million casualties? It is a strange 
game when the results are yet 

Regardless of the far-reaching 
results of THE DAY AFTER, the 
fact remains that we havo a 
severe problem in our world. We. 
the people of each nation, and the 
future of each nation and our 
race, are the final winners or 
losers! As Carl Saeen and 
William F. Buckley Jr pointed 
out, the power of the people has 
surmounted all others We must 
educate our children to avoid 
future confrontations 

"The Week After" (Dead Week— How to Avoid Bombing Your Final Exam 

First, accept the fact that, like 
death and taxes, final exams are 
inevitable. Plead, pray, 
procrastinate as you may, they 
are still there. 

Next, get a commitment from 
your professor. What kind of 
exam does he plan to give? How 
many questions? What Kinds of 
questions (e.g., essay, short 
answer, multiple choice, etc)? 
What topics? What part of the 
course will the final cover— the 
entire course or the materials 
since the last exam? What 
suggestions might he or she 
make to help you better prepare 
for the final? If necessary, ask 
for an individual conference to 
get further help from' your in- 
structor before the final. 

Now, use Dead Week for what 
it is intended: to study for your 

How to study? 

1. Review (of course! ). Review 
your notes. Review your textbook 
( I hope you've got into the habit 
°f marking it well and even 
writing annotations in the 

Custom Art Work 

Mary Hughes 

Licienne Simon 

Fine Art and Calligraphy 


margins). Review your previous 
exam papers and written work. 
Where did you go wrong? What 
did you do particularly well? 
How can you profit from your 
previous mistakes? Study with a 
classmate if this helps, but don't 
let this cooperative reviewing 
take the place of your own 
private reviewing: it should be a 
supplement, not a substitute. 

2. Warm-up! Just as you warm- 
up for an athletic event or 
game— by going through the 
same movements that you will be 
involved in during the actual 
contest— i.e., the exam. In other 
words, do some writing. Write 
down names, places, dates, key 
ideas, problem and solutions. 
More than this, however, 
especially if you're preparing for 
a course in English, History, 
Philosophy, or some other course 
that involves essay questions, 
write some brief practice essays. 
Try to anticipate what questions 
will appear on the exam. (Ask 
your professor for some samples 
from previous exams in this 
course). Go through the same 

writing motions that you expect 
to go through on the exam itself, 
then check your essay to make 
sure you've done it right— that is, 
clearly, logically, and ac- 
curately. If you are lucky, you 
might even find yourself writing 
on the same question on the exam 
itself— but even if you don't find 
the exact same question on the 
exam, you will have organized 
the basic materials so that you 
can write clearly and coherently 
when you encounter similar 
questions on the exam. 
Moreover, you will have more 
confidence in yourself when you 
start the exam. (And, hopefully, 
if you've warmed up properly, 
you won't pull an intellectual 

3. Try to get some rest before 
the exam— a decent night's sleep 
if you can possibly manage that. 
In any case, get enough rest to be 
at your intellectual best when you 
enter the exam room. Ideally, 
you should concentrate t>n good 
health habits for at least a week 
before the exam period: that 
means proper food and sleep and 

exercise. (and minimal 
dissipation) throughout Dead 
Week. Save the partying arid 
celebrating for the Christmas 
break. (Whoever heard of 
"Merry Dead Week"?) 

4. Read the questions! Sounds 
obvious, I realize, but a sur- 
prising number of students 
perennially fail to do this. Don't 
start writing an answer until you 
fully understand what your in- 
structor is asking for. If you can't 
comprehend the question, ask 
you professor. If you have time 
limits for different questions on 
the exam, be sure to watch your 

5. Be selective. Remember that 

if you have studied properly, you 
cannot possibly write everything 
you know (on an essay question) 
during the limited period 
assigned to each final exam. 
Select those details most relevant 
to each question— and remember 
that you will be graded not on 
what you may know, but^n what 
you actually write. In short, it's 
what's on your paper, not what's 
in your head, that counts finally 
on finals. With a bit of luck and 
lots of pluck, you should be able 
to celebrate the holidays 
properly. Merry Christmas'

We are all glad to be back but 
little do we have to look forward 
to. These next couple of weeks 
will definately test our sanity 
with preparation for finals. This 
Saturday the KA's are holding an 
alumni open house for you 
guessed it, our alumni! We are 
also looking forward to the 
Homecoming festivities this 
weekend. The base-line bums will 
have hopefully made their first 
appearence this week. We back 
the Gents as well as have a good 
time doing it! Congratulations to 
Jeff Robertson, Nick Nolfe, and 
Brian Dempsey for being picked 
as Zeta Big Brothers. Yes, they 
are the studs of the chapter and 
they will represent us well. If this 
is the last edition of the paper, we 
would like to wish everyone a 
Happy Christmas and a Merry 
New Year. 

If this isn't the last edition, Bah 
Humbug! All of the KA's would 
like to thank Miss Kathy Heard 
for her great improvement of 
activities and events on campus. 
There has been a noticeable 
improvement in this area, and 
Kathy, we really appreciate it. 
We would like to invite all the 
faculty and administration to 
come by our open house Satur- 

day. The Sled got a new car- 
burator and a few new bumper 
stickers over the holidays. Mike 
says if you've got a decent 
sticker, come paste it on Sled 
and surprise him. Fritz needs a 
new window, Orville is still 
jammin' and the Sled is still 
thumpin.' We will have to drink 
about those words of wisdom!

causing more widespread terror 
than The Day After. As another

on how long this one will last.

Recently the Dean of Students 
office sponsored a workshop for 
students interested in becoming 
Resident Assistants (RA). This 
workshop, held on November 29 
in Kilpatrick Auditorium, 
basically explained the 
responsibilities and expectations 
of an RA. Interested students 
were encouraged to attend, 
however it was not required. 

Applications for an RA position 
are now available from any 
member of the Resident Staff at 
Hamilton Hall, until December 
16. All applications are due in the 
Dean of Students Office by 4:00 
p.m. on that date. Once an ap- 
plication is returned to the DOSO 
the student will be placed on the 
list for RA interviews. 

The interview process at- 
tempts to evaluate each can- 
didate based upon his or her 
personality, attitude, dedication. 


integrity, sensitivity, and code of 
conduct. The process includes six 
interviews for each interested 
student. The student will be in- 
terviewed by Dick Anders (Dean 
of Students), Joy Jeffers (Asst. 
Dean of Students), Dr. Mark 
Dulle (RA Program Advisor), 
one Resident Director, one Senior 
RA, and one Senior student. 

Students are* advised to be 
familiar with pertenant in- 
formation from the student 
Handbook, Quicklist, and the 
College Catalogue for possible 
questions during the interviews. 

Students eligible for an RA 
appointment must meet the 
following criteria: Applicants 
are expected to be full-time 
students with a minimum ac- 
cumulative 2.50 GPA. Students 
are also required to take an 
average of 30 credit hours per 
academic year. Each of these 

qualifications is expected to be 
maintained after the ap- 
pointment is bestowed. 

Students are to be advised, 
however, that these RA ap- 
pointments are not just positions 
) of responsibility or work. They 
also require the students to 
become personally acquainted 
with their charges. The RAs are 
also supposed to be available as 
councelors and advisors for their 
fellow students. Each person 
goes through some adjustments 
at college and it is for these times 
when the RAs are useful. 

Applications Due — December 
16, 4:00 p.m.

Gents Joust the Knights in 2nd Game of Season 

Central Florida's Tom Cubit 
missed twice underneath as time 
ran out, giving the Centenary 
Gents on 63-62 win in Shreveport 
Monday night. The win evened 
the Gents on th year at 1-1, while 
Central Florida dropped to 0-3. 

Centenary's pre-season Ail- 
American scored and grabbed a 
game-high 22 points and 11 
rebounds, respecitivly. Eric 

Bonner scored 10 points and 
added 10 rebounds for the home 

Central Florida was led by 
Larry Gowins and Greg Brown 
each with 14 points and Dan 
Faison scored 12 points. Center 
Issac McKinnon added seven 
rebounds for the Knights. 

The Gentlemen led at the half 
37-31, but the Knights tied the 

game at 62 all when Faison hit an 
18-foot jumper from the right 
corner with 1:38 left. Centenary 
went into its delay game and with 
16 seconds left Cubit fouled 
Centenarys Tom Schmidt who 
went to the line to shoot 2. 

Schmidt missed the first and 
made the second, giving the 
Gents an 63-62 advantage. The 
Knights took the last shot with 

five seconds left, but Faison shot 
from the corner bounced off the 
iron and Cubit to tip it did not go 
in, preserving the win for Cen- 

Centenary jumped out to a 10 
point lead 33-23, and37-27, but 
they could not put the Knights 
away as they turned the ball over 
20 times. Centenary made 25 of 55 
shots (.455), while Central

Two Chairs Endowed 

For the first time in Cen- 
tenary's history, two academic 
chairs have been endowed to the 
college at the same time. One is 
the Mary Warters Chair of 
Biology, honoring former biology 
professor Dr. Mary Warters. The 
other is the Ed E. and Gladys 
Hurley Chair of Music, 
bequeathed by Mrs. Hurley and 
honoring her family. Centenary 
now has eight academic chairs, 
the Keen Chair of Physics, the T. 
L. James Chair of Religion, The 
William C. Woolf chair of 
Geology, the Gus Wortham Chair 
of Engineering, the Willie Cavett 
and Paul Marvin Brown, Jr. 
Endowed Chair of English, and 
the Sample Chair of Business. 
Including the recently endowed 
Sample Chair of Business, this 
means Centenary has received 
three chairs in one academic 

An endowed chair means to 

Centenary that a half a million 

dollars has been either raised, as 

in the case of the Mary Warters 

Chair, or gifted, as in the case of 

the Hurley Chair. This money is 

then invested, and the income is 

used to support a chosen 

professor, provide his salary, 
fund research projects, and 
provide special resources and 
materials. A chair may be named 
after the donor or for someone 
the donor wishes to honor. 

The Mary Warters Chair of 
Biology is the first at Centenary 
to honor a former professor, and 
the first to be founded by public 
subscription. Mary Warters is 
well deserving of this honor. She 
dedicated forty-four years 
toward teaching, challengine and 
inspiring numerous young men 
and women. One former student, 
just as many others, remembers 
her with awe, associating biology 
with "proficiency and 
revelation," and, to a degree, 
with a higher form of art. 

Mr. and Mrs. Hurley, as all 
know, enabled the college to build 
the Hurley Music Building, and 
they have continuously and 
graciously given valuable gifts 
when necessary. After Mrs. 
Hurley's sad and recent death, a 
legacy left by the Hurley's 
provide an income of $70,000 each 
year to establish the Ed E. and 
Gladys Hurley Chair of Music. 

Centenary Film Society 
To Show Films 

The Centenary Film Society 
will be presenting thirty-one 
different films this semester on 
campus. The Society's spring 
series primarily features films 
from France and Germany, in 
conjunction with the course 
English 286: "Masterpieces of 
French and German Cinema." 
Among other films shown will be 
three films by the Swedish 
director Ingmar Bergman, two 
by the Spanish surrealist Luis 
Bunuel, and the most visually 
stunning film to date by Japan's 
most honored director — Akira 

Two different films will be 
shown every week this semester. 
The main screenings are on 
Tuesday and Thursday night at 
7:30 in 114 Mickle Hall. However, 
the Tuesday night film is also 
shown Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 
in 114 Mickle, and the Thursday 

night film is repeated on Friday 
afternoon at 2:00 in 36 Jackson 
Hall. A student's season pass for 
all thirty-one films is only $15.00, 
while a single admission for 
students is $1.00. All of the films 
can count towards C. P. credit. 

Future plans for the Centenary 
Film Society include a Comedy 
Film Festival this summer which 
would focus mainly on classic 
Hollywood comedies from the 
1930s and 1940s. This fall (funding 
permitting) the Society would 
like to bring to campus Rainer 
Werner Fassbinder's Berlin 
Alexanderplatz, a fifteen hour 
masterpiece that is the German 
equivalent of I, Claudius and 
Nicholas Nickeby. 

For more information on the 
series and the activities of the 
Centenary Film Society, contact 
Dr. Jeff Hendricks in the English 

Mary Warter talking to Dr. Loyless and Dr. Seidler 

For their wonderful generosity, 
Centenary will ever remain 
deeply grateful.

professors to fill the chairs has tember.

Page 2— CENTENARY CONGLOMERATE— Thurs.. Feb. 2, 1!>84 


As a Senior and graduate this 
semester, I want to take the 
opportunity to say to the 
professors here at Centenary 
College, "Thank you for my 

I realize that many times you 
do not get recognition from 
students, parents or the com- 
munity for the fine work you all 
do here. What you give to your 
students is vastly important and, 
I can honestly say, has changed 
my life. 

Centenary is a unique in- 
stitution and as a thirty-two year 
old mother, I feel deeply 
privileged to have had the op- 
portunity to attend such an 
outstanding college. Perhaps my 
age has something to do with my 
deep appreciation, although I do 
know that many of my young 
fellow students share my 
opinions concerning Centenary. 
I attended some state 
universities as a young adult and, 
by comparison with Centenary I 
know that Centenary is out- 
standing in its curriculum, its 
individualized attention given to 
students and the caring attitude 
of the professors. All of these 
things go into making this college 
so different from the others I 
have attended. 

The opportunity to grow and 
learn is here. We students are not 
"spoon fed" - we are challenged 
to think, to solve problems and to 
fit information together in order 
to make sense out of the "real 
world." Not only are we given a 
broad knowledge base from the 
varied and creative curriculum, 
we are also given the most 
precious gift that can be given to 
an inquisitive mind - the gift of 
the ability to be critical of the 
world around us (in all that we 

read, see and hear) and to take 
those criticisms and construct a 
plan which will make our own 
lives better and possibly help 
make better the lives of others. 
Several years from now many 
of the facts that I have learned 
here will have changed (perhaps 
some of the students graduating 
from Centenary will have 
changed them), but I will always 
have my problem solving 
techniques, my research skills 
and my critical abilities with me. 
Thanks to your caring, your 
tenacity and your dedication, I 
can now enter the world as a 
more enlightened, broadminded 
and confident human being. I am 
not powerless in the face of what, 
to many, seems to be a chaotic 
world; I have the tools to have an 
impact on my own life and the 
lives of others. 

I also appreciate your unique 
personalities and knowing many 
of you has been an enriching 

I have two parting requests: 
One to my fellow students - Take 
time to appreciate this special 
place; and two, to my Professors 
- Take time to appreciate each 

Centenary is an institution 
where personal and mental 
growth is nurtured. As a friend of 
mine who is a professor at 
L.S.U.S. said, "Centenary has 
always been an oasis of 
knowledge in a desert of 
ignorance. They set a wonderful 
example for the rest of us in the 
academic community." 

So, be proud of yourselves. You 
have touched countless lives and 
have touched me profoundly. I 
will carry many of you in my 
heart and mind always. 
With fondest regards, I am 
Sincerely yours. Polly M. Owen 

Editorial: To A Player's Honor 

Why is it that when three of our 
basketball players make the 
same kind of failing grades, only 
one — the newcomer — was 
thrown out, while the other two 
were welcomed back on full 
scholarship? This seems not only 
doubly unfair to the one outsider, 
but also unfair to the school, the 
students, and the fans. 

Who wants to think that our 

school can be guilty of buying 
back athletes who are failing in 
their classes? Surely, if an or- 
dinary student happened to fail 
out, he wouldn't be given another 
chance. So why the athletes? 
They, also, are students. 

Another point is that if this 
discrepancy were to leak out, 
wouldn't honorable players and 

students be less likely to take 
pride in a school that bent the 
rules the way they needed? 

Pride in a school is an im- 
portant thing, and once lost, is 
not easily regained. Buying back 
players is something one thinks 
only done by other schools, in 
other states. It's unfortunate that 
our school is guilty of such an act.

Cold Damages Plants 

During our recent cold spell 
that saw records tumble which 
had stood since the last century, 
severe injury was inflicted upon 
many different kinds of plants. 
We live in climate zone No. 8 that 
tends to be the transitional point 
between semi-tropical and 
temperate conditions. Normally, 
we can use plant species that are 
marginally hardy and get by with 
it. And we should, for this greatly 
enlarges the field of plant 
materials with which we can 
create and enjoy more in- 
resting and beautiful landscapes. 
If past practices have resulted in 
heavy dependence upon the less 
hardy plant species, the recent 
could may well have put your 
landscape nearly back to square 
one. Should such be the case, 
plants chosen for replacement 
may well be considered on the 
basis of their ability to survive 
the rigors of the occasional 
winter that serves up a week of 
sustained low, bone-chilling 
temperatures. Of course we're 
not going to eliminate all of the 

semi-hardy plants from our 
landscapes, but if we lost some 
favorites in this category, 
replacements of the same species 
should be located, where 
possible, in the most protected 
portion of the landscape. Usually, 
the most protected areas are 
those just immediately south of a 
heated structure. 

Fortunately, many of our 
plants will have been killed back 
only to the ground surface and 
will re-grow from the root 
system. Others will sustain 
damage only to the smaller 
branches and thinner tissues. 
Since the extent of injury can 
seldom be precisely determined 
until the growing season is well 
underway, it is my advice that 
pruning not be done until much 
later on in the spring when in- 
jured and non-injured tissues can 
be clearly ascertained. 

Some homeowners are going to 
be shocked later on when ap- 
parently undamaged plants 
suddenly turn brown and die. 
Upon examination, such plants 

will show cracks and other 
damage right at the base of the 
main stem. It is unlikely that 
plants so injured can be saved. 

Particularly in the case of fruit 
trees, but to some extent with 
certain ornamental plants, 
grafting is practiced to enhance 
the desirable qualities of the 
plants. If all of your plant was 
killed by the cold above the graft 
union, don't retain the yet live 
portion below the graft unless 
you're planning to use it again as 
an understock. Those so happy to 
see any part of their plant still 
alive and electing to let the un- 
derstock grow in the role of a 
replacement plant will be 
ultimately disappointed.

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Welcome back to Wonderland, 
kiddies. Did you have an exciting 
vacation? As you can see by the 
front page, things have been 
really hopping around here. Who 
would have expected an on- 
slaught of rabbits at this time of 
year? All kidding aside, I'm 
really happy about the new 
chairs. I have to admit though 
that I was a little confused when 
our esteemed editor told me the 
big news. I could not figure out 
why everyone was so excited 
about chairs. Then I found out 
that there were only two!! I 
decided that they must be very 
special chairs. 

Thank you, dear Editor, for 
clearing things up for me. 

Now that I understand, I have 
decided that there are a few more 
chairs which need to be endowed 
by kindly donors. 

First and foremost, we need a 
G. Gordon Liddy chair of 
HuMANities. We would, of 
course, need a MAN to fill this 
chair. A man with manly 
qualities such as stubborness, 
closed-mindedness and undying 
machismo. I think we would need 
an outsider to fill this one. Does 
anyone know of an out-of-work 
Arkansas prison warden? 

The next chair I have in mind is 
a James Watt chair of Public 
Relations. We need a person like 
Mr. Watt to guide the future P.R. 
people of America. A selection 
committee will be necessary to 

find the recipient of this chair- 
Said committee will be made up 
of a Black, a woman, two Jews, 
and a cripple. 

The School of Music could use a 
highly specialized chair. Hotf 
about a Michael Jackson chair o» 
Castrati Singing? Eunuch said' 

The Boy George chair <& 
Confusion needs to be endowed # 
soon as possible. This chair wi»' 
be filled by a man-woman wW 
exhibits all of the androgy 1 ? 
which has made Boy George tl* 
hero-heroine of the world's boy s ' 
girls, "Boys will be girls." 

That's all I can think of f° f 
now. What do you expect on sue" 
short notice? See you next we^ 
when Wonderland is fuW 
recovered from the holidays.

UNO Offers Summer School In Innsbruck 

The University of New Orleans 
will sponsor its 11th annual 
session of UNO-INNSBRUCK, an 
International Summer School 
program in Innsbruck, Austria. 
This educational and travel 
program will involve over 250 
students and some 30 faculty and 
staff members for the summer of 
1984. Also teaching with the 
summer school will be former 
United States Senator Frank 
Church. Senator Church 
graduated Phi Beta Kappa from 
Stanford University and earned 
his law degree there in 1950. He 
served in the U.S. Senate from 
1957 to 1981 and held many im- 
portant positions including the 
Chairmanship of the Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee. As 
a member of this committee he 
became one of the nation's 
leading experts in U.S. foreign 
policy. Currently he is practicing 
law in Washington, D.C. and 
while in Innsbruck for the 
summer of 1984 he will teach a 
course in the Diplomatic History 
of the United States and a forum 
on Great Western Issues. 

"UNO's popular Alpine 
summer school attracted 
students from 36 different 

universities and four foreign 
countries last year," said Carl 
Wagner, Assistant to the Dean of 
International Study Programs at 
UNO. "As a result, UNO- 
INNSBRUCK is one of the largest 
summer schools offered overseas 
by American universities." 

Applicants are already lining 
up for the summer of 1984. Part of 
the secret may be that more than 
70 courses in 19 different subject 
areas are available in the 
magnificent Innsbruck setting in 
the heart of the Alps. While you 
can earn up to 10 semester credit 
hours, your classroom is 
surrounded by the snowcapped 
mountains of Tyrol. 

Naturally, courses focus on the 
cultural, historic, social and 
economic traditions of Europe. 
But geology, business, education 
and biology are also taught. All 
instruction is in English, and 
faculty from American 
universities as well as from the 
University of Innsbruck par- 
ticipate. All credits are fully 

In addition to college age 
students, UNO-INNSBRUCK is 
increasingly popular with adults 
who may enroll either for credit 

or audit. 

During the sessions, students 
are housed in the Studentenhaus 
at the 300 year-old University of 
Innsbruck. This school is just a 
five minute walk from the many 
inns, cafes, and beer gardens in 
the "Old Town" — popular with 
Austrian students since the 
Middle Ages. 

Three- day weekends offer 
ample time for UNO- 
Innsbruckers to travel, back- 
pack, or ski on the nearby 
glaciers. It's a unique way to 
combine summer study and 
European travel. 

with gala opening ceremonies on 
July 1st and ends on August 11th.

apply as soon as possible. In-

"The American Friend 


To Be Shown 

directed by Wim Wenders. 
Germany, 1977. 127 minutes, 
color, in German and subtitled 

cast: Bruno Ganz, Dennis 
Hopper, Lisa Kreuzer, Gerard 
Blain, Nicholas Ray, Samuel 

On Thursday February 2 at 
3:30 and 7:30 in 114 Mickle Hall 
on the Centenary Campus, the 
Centenary College Film Society 
will present Wim Wenders's The 
American Friend. General ad- 
mission is $2.00; for students and 
senior citizens, $1.00. 

The American Friend — widely 
considered the major revelation 
of the 1977 Cannes and New York 
Film Festivals— has established 
Wim Wenders with R. W. 
Fassbinder and Werner Herzog 
in the very first rank of the 
remarkable resurgent German 
cinema. Based on Patricia 

Highsmith's thriller Ripley's 
Game, the barouquely complex 
storyline centers on an ordinary 
Hamburg artisan employed as an 
assassin by a French gangster 
through the manipulation of a 
mysterious American. 

The American Friend raises 
Wenders's themes of rootlessness 
and the tenuousness of per- 
sonality to a global level, 
detailing a homogenized post- 
war world in which cities, 
languages, and cultures blur into 
each other with an ease that is 
both exhilarating and 
frightening. Wenders stages two 
spectacular action set-pieces, in 
a Paris Metro station and on a 
speeding train, and his visual 
style, based on a red-blue color 
scheme of neon-like intensity, is 
overpoweringly rich and 

Wim Wenders is acutely 

aware, perhaps more so than any 
other German director, of 
American "cultural im- 
perialism" as an inescapable and 
fundamental fact of life not only 
in the cinema, but in every other 
aspect of life in post-war West 
Germany. His films reflect this 
"colonization," attempting to 
raise it to a conscious level. "AH 
of my films have as their un- 
derlying current the 
Americanization of Germany," 
he has stated. In their contents, 
Wenders's films explore the 
Americanization of West Ger- 
many; in their technique and 
subject matter they consciously 
emulate Hollywood stereotypes. 

About The American Friend: 

"Fascinating... an extremely 
beautiful film." Vincent Canby, 
The New York Times.

Labor Speaks on London 

Dr. Earl Labor, Chairman of 
the Centenary College English 
Department, was the guest 
speaker at the Annual Jack 
London Birthday Banquet at- 
tended by some 200 international 
London fans at the famous 
author's home town, Glen Ellen, 
Cal., this past weekend. The 
subject of Dr. Labor's address 
was "Jack London's Academic 
Revival: An Update." 

Also on the program, from the 

University of Manchester, 
England, was Dr. Anthony 
Williams, who spoke on the 
subject of London's popularity 
among film-makers as well as 
headers. Among those honored 
by the group were Becky London, 
Jack's only surviving daughter, 
and Professor Charles N. Watson 
of Syracuse University who 
received the Jack London Man of 
the Year Award in recognition of 
his highly acclaimed critical 

study The Novels of Jack Lon- 
don: A Reappraisal, published 
this year by the University of 
Wisconsin. Press. 

The London Banquet is 
organized each year by Russ 
Kingman, owner of "The World 
of Jack London" research center 
and bookstore and author of A 
Pictorial Life of Jack London. 
This year's banquet attracted 
guests from as far away as 

Dr. Hall Giving Seminar 

Dr. Michael L. Hall, associate 
professor of English at Cen- 
tenary College, has been 
awarded a grant of $48,000 by the 
National Endowment for the 
Humanities (NEH) to direct an 
NEH Summer Seminar for 
Secondary School Teachers at 
Centenary this summer. The 
topic for Dr. Hall's seminar will 
be "Montaigne, Bacon, Donne: 
The Emergence of the Essay and 
the Idea of Discovery." 

Among other schools par- 
ticipating in this year's program 
are Princeton University, 
Stanford University, The 
University of Chicago, Yale 
University, Oberlin College, Rice 
University, and Harvard 

The Summer Seminars for 
Secondary School Teachers are 
offered by the NEH in order to 
provide teachers of grades 7 
through 12 a unique opportunity 
for advanced study. For four, 
five, or six weeks during the 
summer, depending on the 
seminar, 15 secondary school 
teachers work under the direc- 

tion of a distinguished college 
teacher and active scholar in an 
area of mutual interest. 

The teachers will study great 
authors and important works in 
the humanities, exploring them 
in a systematic and thorough 
way. Through reading, writing, 
and reflection, and through 
frequent discussions — formal 
and informal — with the seminar 
director and with other teachers 
from across the country, seminar 
participants will increase their 
knowledge and enhance their 
ability to impart an un- 
derstanding of the humanities to 
their students. 

Teachers participating in Dr. 
Hall's seminar will receive a 
stipend of $2,350 for the six weeks 
to cover transportation costs and 
room and board at the college. 
Requests for applications have 
been arriving from teachers 
from all over the United States, 
including Hawaii. Dr. Hall said 
he was somewhat surprised that 
most of the applications for his 
seminar appear to be coming 
from the northeast. Curiously, he 

said, no one from Louisiana has 
yet applied. 

The 15 teachers selected to 
participate in Dr. Hall's seminar 
will examine the emergence of 
the essay as a new literary genre 
against the background of 
Renaissance discoveries in the 
sciences, particularly astronomy 
and geography. Dr. Hall stressed 
that the seminar is open to 
teachers of all subjects. The 
deadline for applications is 
March 1, 1984. 

Dr. Hall joined the Centenary 
College English faculty in 1976 
after receiving his Ph.D. from 
The John Hopkins University. He 
has also been an NEH fellow in 
residence at the University of 
Chicago in 1978-79 and a tutor in 
the British Studies at Oxford 
Program at St. John's College, 
Oxford, in the summer of 1982., 

Anyone interested in learning 
more about the seminar at 
Centenary or the program for 
secondary school teachers should

ment of English, Centenary 
College, 869-5254.

Alexander Ginzburg, 
1st Forums Speaker 

by Carole Powell 

Alexander Ginzburg, who was 
exiled from the Soviet Union 
because of his human rights 
activities in that country, is the 
Student Government 
Association's first Forums 
speaker of this semester. He will 
present a lecture entitled "The 
Continuing Human Rights 
Struggle in the USSR" on 
Monday, February 13, at 7:30 
p.m. in Hurley Auditorium. 

Ginzburg, born in Moscow in 
November of 1936, has been 
active in the human rights 
movement in the USSR from its 
very inception. On April 27, 1979, 
Mr. Ginzburg was released from 
a Soviet labor camp and ex- 
changed, along with fellow 
political prisoners Eduard 
Kuznetsov, Mark Dymshits, 
Valentyn Moroz, and Pastor 
Georgi Vins, for two convicted 
spies. This widely-publicized 
event captured the attention of 
the world. 

While in the USSR, Alexander 
Ginzburg was the administrator 
of the Russian Social Fund, a 
charitable organization founded 
by him and exiled author 
Alexander Solzhenitsyn to aid 
Soviet prisoners and their 
families. Alexander Sozhenitsyn 
has donated all his royalties from 
the Gulag Archipelago for the 
Fund's financial support. 

Alexander Ginzburg's open 
opposition to the Soviet govern- 
ment's repressive policies began 
in the late 1950's when he edited 
the first samizdat (typewritten) 
literary journal, Sintaxis, which 
contained poems by young 
Moscow and Leningrad writers. 
For this he was arrested in 1960 
and sentenced to two years at 
forced labor. Upon his release, 
Ginzburg was forbidden to 
resume his studies in journalism 
at Moscow University and had 
great difficulty in finding work. 
He eventually took on a series of 
odd jobs, including cleaning 

In 1966, he came to the at- 
tention of the world press when 
he was arrested for compiling a 
White Book on the celebrated 
trial of writers Andrei Sinyavsky 
and Yuli Daniel. In January 1967, 
the KGB arrested Ginzburg and 
three other dissidents in a trial 
that attracted a great deal of 
international attention. The 
"trial of the four," as it became 
known, resulted in Ginzburg's 
second term of imprisonment. He 
was sentenced to five years of 
strict regime labor camp and 
was released in 1972, emerging 
from prison with ulcers and other 
ailments. He was not allowed to 
live in Moscow and setted in 
Tarusa, approximately 70 miles 
from the capital. It was at this 
time that Ginzburg met 
Alexander Solzhenitsyn and the 
two men created the Russian 
Social Fund. 

In 1976, Ginzburg further ex- 
panded his human rights ac- 
tivities by becoming one of the 
founding members of the Moscow 
Helsinki Watch Group, a citizens' 
organization committed to 
monitoring the Soviet Union's 
adherence to the humanitarian 
provisions of the Helsinki Ac- 
cords. The group issued a 
number of thoroughly researched 
studies on Soviet human rights 
violations and Ginzburg helped 
prepare several of these, in- 
cluding an exhaustive study on 
living conditions in Soviet prisons 
and labor camps. 

In February of 1977, the KGB 
was no longer able to tolerate 
Ginzburg's human rights and 
charitable activities, and he was 
again arrested. His third trial 
began in July of 1977, and Ginz- 
burg quickly became an in- 
ternational cause celebre. In 
spite of vigorous protests from 
the International League for 
Human Rights, Amnesty In- 
ternational, and the U.S.-based 
Alexander Ginzburg Defense 
Committee (among whose 
members were Arthur Mnler, 

Alexander Ginzburg 

Saul Bellow, Kurt Vonnegut and 
Senator Daniel Moynihan), and 
the personal intervention of 
Nobel prize-winner Andrei 
Sakharov, Ginzburg received his 
most severe sentence: 8 years of 
special regime labor camp, to be 
spent in Mordovian Camp No. 1, 
the harshest of all the USSR's 
prison camps. 

Alexander Ginzburg was 
serving the third year of his 
sentence when, on April 25th, he 
was transported from the labor 
camp to Moscow's Lefortovo 
Prison, where he was informed 
that he was being stripped of his 
Soviet citizenship and was to be 
exiled to the West. Mr. Ginzburg, 
along with four other Soviet 
political prisoners, was ex- 
changed for two convicted Soviet 

spies and arrived in New York on 
April 27, 1979. 

At the time of his release, Mr. 
Ginzburg had spent nine years in 
prison. His family, consisting of 
his 72-year old mother, Ludmilla, 
his wife, Irina, and two young 
sons, Alexander and Alexei, ages 
eight and six, respectively, 
arrived in the United States in 
February, 1980. The Ginzburgs 
now reside in Paris, France. 
They also have an adopted son, 
21-year old Sergei Shibayev, for 
whom they are trying to obtain 
permission to emigrate to the

Dear Editor: 

A front page story in last 
week's Conglomerate began with 
the lead "Some 182 students have 
been named to the Dean's List at 
Centenary College..." The article 
then continued by listing only 
fifty-five of these students. 

I recognized this story as a 
college-issued press release — 
one that was intended for 
publication by Shreveport- 

Bossier papers — not by the 
student-sponsored college paper! 
Most people are probably won- 
dering if having a Shreveport- 
area address is a prerequisite to 
being recognized as a Dean's List 

Come on, Conglomerate! Give 
those other 127 students their 
share of the honor they earned!

Senate Minutes 

by S. J. Ogden 

The meeting of the Student 
Senate was called to order at 
11:10, Tuesday, February 7, by 
President Thurndotte Baugh- 
man. The minutes from the last 
meeting were approved. Alyce 
Boudreaux reported that Karen 
Klusendorf had resigned her 
position on Ed Pol committee and 
asked SGA members for 
suggestions for a suitable 
replacement. Although Faculty 
and Staff were asked to be in- 
cluded as "Pacesetters," the 
motion to change the by-laws was 

referred to the Election Com- 
mittee. Arguments for and 
against SGA members serving on 
the Honor Court, Judicial Board, 
and the Dorm Council were 
presented, but any immediate 
decision was postponed. The 
$25.00 the SGA received for the 
sign competition at homecoming 
was to be set aside for fur- 
nishings for the Student Senate 
chamber. Brad Lyon was 
selected as chairman for the 
upcoming blood drive. Kathy 
Heard reported on preparations 
for the planned Health Fair, and 

the cost of the spring calendar 
was discussed. 

Under Committee Reports, 
Carole Powell reported on 
Forums, and Michael Hayes 
reported on the Entertainment 
Committee's plans for the Spring 
Party, SUB week, and a possible 
carnival party at Hamill's Park. 

Lastly, the next week's 
meeting was made a special

Words From Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Now that we're all nicely 
settled in our classes, and have 
adjusted to our daily routines, it's 
time to start thinking about 
getting out of here. By "getting 
out," I do not mean graduation, 
nor do I mean flunking out — I'm 
talking about ROAD TRIPS. 

Road trips are something 
which we all enjoy. A road trip 
could be as long as a drive to 
Florida, or as short a jaunt as to 
Bossier and back. When road 
tripping, it is not the distance, but 
the state of mind that counts. 

The road trip state of mind is 
not easy to describe. It begins 
with a sudden urge (in some this 
urge is physically manifested by 
anything from a chill to an 
epileptic-type seizure). This urge 
is to be dealt with as soon as 
possible. If not satisfied, it may 
result in a 3 a.m. trip to Colorado. 
So for your own sake as well as 

the sakes of the friends you will 
no doubt bring along, please take 
care of this feeling as soon as it 
rears its automotive head. 

Once you decide to take a road 
trip, certain preparations must 
be made. Of course, you need a 
car. Road trips are logically 
irr possible without some means 
of transportation. The car need 
not be flashy or even clean. It 
simply needs a working engine 
and four wheels, and, since 
spring is on the way, windows 
that roll down. 

When you have found a 
satisfactory automobile, you 
need to find someone to put in the 
car (other than yourself). After 
all, it's not the car or the reeb 
that makes the road trip, it's the 
people. When you ask your 
friends to come along, make sure 
they say "yes" with a certain 
amount of enthusiasm. If your 

companions are not as excited as 
you are, the trip will be a failure- 

The next item is a crucial part 
of any truly great road trip " 
music. The music has got to 1* 
good, folks. The Osmonds jus' 
will not do. You must have fr 
spirational music. May I sugg#' 
a few sure-fire hits? 1. The fir 5 ' 
Van Halen album. 2. The Bead 1 
Boys "Greatest Hits." 3. T* 
sound track to Honeysuck" 
Rose. 4. Any Beatles album. * 
Squeeze "Argybargy" or "Ea* 1 
Side Story." 6. The Sex Pistol* 
"Never Mind the Bollocks!" 

Now, get outa here. Go. Hit tl* 
proverbial road. But drive safety 
And please, if you're driving 
don't drink. Wonderland wants 
hear about your road trip, W 
read about it in the obituari**

Mardi Gras, Not For The Meek 

On the sixth of March, New 
Orleans will be jam-packed with 
thousands of men, women and 
children, celebrating the climax 
of a festival season that dates 
back to centuries before the 
Christian calendar was ever 
conceived. Although there will 
not be a sacrifice to the Gods, and 
no blood sprinkled on fields to 
assure fertility in flesh and soil, 
there will be hordes of totally, 
horribly twisted merrymakers, 
cramming the streets of the city. 
The scene will be much akin to 
such an account, five thousand 
years ago, of the Arcadian 
Shepherd's celebration of spring 
by sacrificing a goat, eating it, 
and then making whips of the 
skin with which to lash the 
people, naked and festive, 
through the streets of their 
village. In actuality, the date of 
the Arcadian event is com- 
parable to the present day of 
Mardi Gras on the Christian 
Calendar. Centuries later, as the 
festival began to be celebrated in 
Rome, it took on a religious 
meaning associated with the 
forgiving of sins and the fruit- 
fulness of women. The climax of 
the festival was called 

"Lupercalia," after the priests, 
"Luperci," who presided over 
the festivities. The season lasted 
for months and included 
elaborate masochistic rites 
which took place in the temples. 
During "Lupercalia" all laws 
were abandoned. Crimes ranging 
from murder to rape and 
adultery were commonplace. 
The practice of wearing masks 
became popular, probably 
because it enabled people to 
perform outrageous acts of 
degradation and not be held 
responsible for them. Men and 
women of high social ranking 
were able to mingle with the 
commoners in all parts of the 
merrymaking, hint, hint. 
Another act the masks made 
easy was assasination of 

Lupercalia was so popular that 
even the coming of Christianity 
did not stop it. Around the year 
six hundred, Pope Gregory the 
Great invented our present day 
calender and decreed today's 
fluctuating date of Ash Wed- 
nesday as the final day of Lent (a 

time of repentence), and made 
the day before, Tuesday, the 
climax of the season of feasting. 

Festivals similar to "Luper- 
calia" continued to be celebrated 
and in time other counties such 
as France began to celebrate it. 
The idea of masks and masked 
balls and festivals delighted 
French aristocrats and spec- 
tacular balls and street 
processions were carried out 
every year, to the delight of the 
French people. 

The tradition of Mardi Gras in 
New Orleans is of course, 
begotten of the French people. 
Early Mardi Gras celebrations in 
New Orleans were probably not 
as elaborately decorated as in 
France, because of all the streets 
in New Orleans being mud, plus 
the lack of ballrooms and 
theaters, but to be sure there 
were crude celebrations among 
the gambling and prostitution 
houses. By 1766, when Spain took 
over, Mardi Gras was firmly 
established as a yearly custom of 
the area. New Orleans at this 
time had a reputation as a very 
sinful city, people of ill repute 
flocked to the area because of the 
lack of law and order there. As a 
result, crimes of all kinds were 
widespread. Murder is said to 
have been so common that 

"natives would step over a 
corpse on the way to a ball or the 
opera and think nothing of it." 
Because of this, the Spanish 
Suppressors banned Mardi Gras 
and it disappeared until 
American rule came. The 
festival was again banned in 1806 
when American authorities were 
convinced that the treasonist 
Aaron Burr and his followers 
were going to capture New 

Orleans during Mardi Gras, and 
use it as their base for the 
building of Burr's empire. Even 
though Burr was stopped before 
he came to New Orleans, Mardi 
Gras was still discontinued until 
1823 when it was finally slowly 
allowed back to life. Causes of the 
long cancellation were a gain 
attributed to the high crime rate 

caused by the celebration. In the 
years following 1823, Mardi Gras 
grew in strength and popularity, 
and in 1838 the first formal 
parades took place. The parades 
usually had some sort of theme, 
depicting famous personalities, 
Royalty, or characters from 
literary works. This has been 
continued today. Each "Krewe," 
(a party of men who form their 

own parade and ball), picks a 
certain theme and patterns its' 
parade after it. Among the more 
famous parades of today are the 
parade of Rex and the parade of 
The Zulu Aid and Pleasure Club. 
There are many parades to be 
watched during the Mardi Gras 
festival, weeks before the actual 
Mardi Gras, parades and balls 
are held almost every day. 

This year students here at 
Centenary will have the op- 
portunity to experience Mardi 
Gras first hand. School will be out 
from the second of March to the 
12th. This is an excellent chance 
to attend the carnival, after all, 
how often does one have the 
chance to dress up in some 
grotesque mask and costume and 
run, stagger, or crawl (whatever 
your pleasure), through the 
filthy, muddy, encrusted streets 
of Louisiana's most famous city, 
and not be arrested for it!! 
Centenary students should make 
every effort to be at the carnival, 
it is sure to be an intoxicating 
experience, uh, I mean an in- 
toxicatingly Cultural experience, 
sorry, Dr. Webb.

That Obscure Object of Desire 
is the urbane and ironic tale of an 
older man named Matthieu who 


is obsessed with "possessing" 
Concha, a mysterious and elusive 
young woman. Turning up first 
as his maid, she disappears as 
soon as he becomes too in- 
terested. When he later visits 
Switzerland, she turns up there 
as well, vaguely linked with 
activities of a terrorist group 
whose robberies and bombings 
seem to coincide with each of his 
advances towards her. The 
surrealistic quality of their 
relationship and Matthieu's quest 
is accentuated by Bunuel's use of 

two totally differnet-looking 
actresses to play the part of 

From his working relationship 
with Salvador Dali in Paris in the 
early 1920s until his death in 1983, 
Bunuel had proven himself to be 
the most experimental and 
anarchistic film-maker in the 
history of the cinema. He is 
fundamentally a brilliant 
satirist, comparable to Swift and 
Goya, who hopes that by ex- 
posing the savage inhumanity of 
human beings he will somehow 

make us more human.

New York Times and Time 

magazine "Ten Best" List for

"A work of such perfect control 
and precision it reminds us of the

the hands of someone we now

master." Vincent Canby, New

"Bunuel is in such fluid touch 
with his medium that he seems 
incapable of staging an awkward 
shot. The movie appears to flow 
directly from his subconscious, 
just as surrealist art is meant to 
do." Time.

January In Florida 

by Darren Daigle 
What beats a cold, dreary 
Interim on campus? Among the 
infinite possibilities, the answer 
that concerns us here is "A 
warm, vibrant Interim off 
campus, of course!" Florida, tc 
be specific! 

The Florida Christian 
Education Interim was created 
by CSCC director, Rev. Bert 
Scott, in corroboration with 

George Bozone, a former Cen- 
tenary graduate. George is the 
leader of Crossroads Adventures, 
a group that specializes in taking 
church groups and other in- 
terested parties on camping, 
hiking, and biking trips. The 
Interim class was contrived 
seven years ago to aid interested 
students in planning and im- 
plementing outdoor activities for 
groups. And by the term "out-

door" I mean what 20th century 
civilization has termed "the 
wilderness." Use your 
imagination: the "wilderness" is 
any location where man-made 
luxuries such as air conditioners, 
central heating, water heaters, 
and bathroom facilities are 
virtually non-existant. It is the 
wonderful world of camping and 
snuggling in the arms of Nature. 
The Interim blasted off to an 
exciting start as the participants 
assembled on Wednesday, 
January 3rd, at the Florida 
United Methodist Youth Camp in 
Leesburg, Florida. 

After class leader Bert Scott 
had broken us up into groups and 
delegated responsibility, we were 
then joined by P. B. Compare, a 
worker for Crossroads Ad- 
vertures and camper ex- 
traordinairre who was to escort 
and support us through back- 
packing and bicycling. Besides 
being a leader through 
Crossroads Adventures, P. B. did 
a lot more for all of us, and 
without her, the Interim would 
not have been so wonderful. 

First we went backpacking 
through the Ocala National 
Forest where we were joined by 
Centenary graduate Tim 
Bricker. We trekked almost 20 
miles on the Ocala Trail over a 
three-day period, getting our first 
taste of hiking, georgeous 
scenery, and sore muscles. Some 
of the group experienced with no 
great pleasure the notorious 
Florida Holly plant, a pretty 
plant with red berries and an oily 
touch that corrupts sensitive 
human flesh with a rash similar 
to Poison Ivy. 

We returned to Leesburg on 
Saturday night, tired, sore, and 

with blistered feet, to begin 
planning for our next adventure, 
canoeing. All planning, 
preparation, and recuperation 
took place on Sunday, so by 
Monday, we were refreshed and 
ready to roll. We canoed for 22 
miles on the Oklawaha River, 
beginning our trip by paddling up 
a branch of the Oklawaha onto 
the Silver River, where about 
three miles upstream we lunched 
on the banks in the presence of a 
tribe of wild monkeys hungrily 
eying our food. (Yes, I know. 
"Wild monkeys in Florida?" 
Even after chasing the little 
beasts away from our lunch, we 
still could not believe it). 

That night we camped on a 
beautiful high bluff along a curve 
in the river, and got our first and 
only taste of rain throughout the 
night and half of the morning. We 
cooked breakfast on a Coleman 
stove that we sheltered with our 
open poncho's held over the 
aromatic cooking. The rain did 
not dampen our spirits, just our 
sleeping bags while we slept (or 
tried to sleep: water kept 
trickling in most of the night). 
Tuesday evening back at 
Leesburg found open sleeping 
bags strung up on different 
clotheslines to dry. But we didn't 
care: the scenery and experience 
were well worth the discomforts. 

Wednesday was one big thrill. 
Disneyworld and Epcot; Mickey 
Mouse and Figment. In- 
describable. We actually got to 
sing our loyalty to the Mouse 
Himself. Thrilling, refreshing, 
and relaxing. When we left 
Disneyworld, we drove 2V 2 hours 
further down south from 
Disneyworld to Stuart, Florida. 
We slept at P. B.'s house and 

planned our final activity, 

On the first day of biking we 
went to Hobe Sound on the 
Atlantic coast for a couple of 
hours of playing in the sun, sand, 
and surf. Need I add that the 
weather was bright and sunny, 
albeit a bit windy? Fantastic. We 
could not help but feel a little 
smug knowing that our friends 
and families were probably 
miserable in the grip of Old Man 
Winter. We spent the second day 
with a group of youths from 
different churches in the area at 
a New Games festival which we 
coordinated with the help of 
Crossroads Adventures. We 
returned to P. B.'s house on the 
third day, amassing a total of 
over 40 miles on our bicycles. The 
next day, Monday, we left for 
LaBelle, Florida, our final In- 
terim stop where we would relax 
and evaluate the trip. 

(To ensure that we were 
properly relaxed, Tuesday we 
hopped over to the Gulf Coast for 
a morning of sun and sand. It was 
just what the doctor ordered). 

Wednesday, January 18th was 
our day of departure. I can safely 
say that it was hard for all of us to 
tear ourselves away from 
Florida. For two weeks we had 
lived with each other, endured 
much with each other, and 
supported each other. We learned 
about ourselves as well as nature 
and outdoor group planning. It 
was an Interim we all will never 
forget: the experience of actually 
doing the camping and other 
activities is an education that will 
take a long time to be forgotten, if 
it is ever forgotten.

Zimmerman, Laura Pearce,

On Tuesday, February 14 at 
3:30 and 7:30 p.m. in 114 Mickle 
Hall the Centenary Film Society 
will present two classics of the 
German silent cinema— The 
Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and 
Nosferatu. Admission is $2.00; 
$1.00 for students and senior 
citizens, c. P. Credit 

The Expressionist movement 
that swept the visual arts of 
Northern Europe during the first 
decade of this century flourished 
in the German cinema of the 
1920s. This expressionism in 
German film, by portraying the 
internal psychological conflicts 
of the individual as distortions of 
the external world, reveals a 
post-World War I Germany 
alienated from the rest of 
Western Europe and obsessed 
with decadence, madness, 
power, humiliation, and destiny. 
The Cabinet of Dr. Carligari and 
Nosferatu are classic examples 
of this expressionistic style. 

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is 
the story of a young man who 
tries to prove that a travelling 
hypnotist is ordering his sleep- 

walking assistant to murder 
while under a hypnotic spell. A 
ground-breaking film that in- 
fluenced the way films were 
made throughout the world, 
Caligari plunges beneath the 
comforting facade of order and 
reason to reveal a nightmare 
world, a disintegrating universe 
buffeted by unfathomable drives 
and shrouded by jagged but 
pervasive shadows. It is a film 
that catches the alienation, 
frustration, tension, and horror 
of existence. 

Nosferatu is considered by 
some critics the finest horror- 
fantasy film ever made. Unlike 
the latter versions of Dracula by 
Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee, 
Max Shreck's vampire is no sexy, 
suave, debonair figure who wins 
the lady's heart before he steals 
her blood. He is hideously ugly, a 
shriveled, bony, fanged, taloned 
little man. Perhaps most notable 
about Murnau's version of this 
myth is the length of time that the 
vampire's victim stays alive 
after being attacked, giving a 
feeling of mystical parasitism, of 
the way death perpetually feeds 
off the living. 


Mexico, 1962. Director: Luis 
Bunuel. Screenplay: Bunuel, 
from a story by Bunuel and Luis 
Alcoriza. Photography: Gabriel 
Figueroa. Cast: Silvia Pinal, 
Enrique Rambal, Jacqueline 
Andere. In Spanish, with sub- 
titles. 95 minutes. 

On Thursday, February 16 at 
7:30 p.m. in 114 Mickle Hall, and 

on Friday, February 17 at 2:00 
p.m. in 36 Jackson Hall the 
Centenary Film Society will 
present Luis Bunuel's The Ex- 
terminating Angel. General 
admission is $2.00; $1.00 for 
students and senior citizens. C. P. 
Credit is available. 

The Exterminating Angel is the 
story of a group of elegant guests 
at a dinner party— nobles, 
generals, judges— who find, once 
dinner is over, that they are 
unable to leave the dining room. 
No apparent reason is given; in 
fact, the doors remain wide open, 
yet the guests cannot bring 
themselves to walk across the 
room and step into the next room. 
Uniforms wrinkle, ball gowns, 
rumple, make-up and hair-do's 

little by little shift and fade, until 
the elegance of dress and manner 
has given way entirely to a 
vulgarity of mien and attitude. 
The plot of The Exterminating 
Angel testifies to the presence of 
the marvelous, or of "mystery," 
to use Bunuel's word. For the 
film cannot be fully understood 
outside the perspective of 
surrealism, of which Bunuel 
himself has said: 

Surrealism has taught me that 
life has a moral significance that 
man cannot afford to ignore. 
Through surrealism I also 
discovered for the first time that 
man is not free. I used to believe 
our freedom was unlimited, but I 
have found in surrealism, a 
discipline that must be followed. 

This has been one of the great 
lessons in my life, a marvelous 
and poetic step. 

While surrealism is crucial in 
understanding Bunuel's film, 
realism is also a major part of his 
aesthetics. In the Exterminating 
Angel man's wounds are not 
those of the flesh; they are 
wounds which show in behavior 
and actions— horror, filth, and 
misery give way to a leprosy of 
the soul, the brutal reality is the 
same. In many ways a modern 
Goya, Bunuel's realism is 
ultimately not so much aesthetic 
as metaphysical. Over the 
ugliness, cruelty, and horror, a 
voice may be heard which bears 
witness to love among human 
beings, and repudiates the eveil 
which is a natural part of life.

As we all know, Valentine's 
Day is only a few days away! 
That means candy, flowers, and 
a special lunch or dinner for just 
the two of you. Shreveport has 
the perfect restaurant for your 
romantic meal ... Fonde Cains 
located at 1846 Fairfield, 
Fountain Towers. Bruce Cain is 
the fine host in this French and 
Northern Italian Restaurant. The 
specialities here are veal, beef, 
seafood, and lamb. Our favorite 
here is the Steak Diane. This 
tender piece of beef is cooked at 
the table and served with a 
delicious mushroom and wine 
sauce. Prior to our entree, we 
enjoyed an exquisite Ceaser 
salad and an adequate escargot 

The wine list is very good and 
includes all price ranges in the 
French, Italian, California, and 
German categories. The desserts 
looked splendid. Our choice from 
the pastry cart was a fantastic 
chocolate mint layer cake. 
Dessert was definitely the 
highlight of our evening. 

For your dining pleasure, a 
pianist entertains daily at lunch 
and dinner. Fonde Cains is open 
Sunday through Friday for lunch 
from 11:30 a.m-2:30 p.m. Dinner 
is served from 6:00-10:30 p.m. 
Monday through Thursday and 
from 6:00-11:00 p.m. Friday and 
Saturday. Reservations are not 
required but encouraged on 
weekends. All major credit cards 
are accepted. So, do something 
special "AROUND TOWN" this 
Valentine's Day, dine at Fonde 


Welcome to another exciting 
episode of SUB SCOOP. Since we 
last met many things have been 
happening around campus. We 
are all excited about Centenary 
receiving two chairs. I imagine 
the students are all thankful to 
Dr. Webb for proclaiming that 
afternoon a time of celebration. 

Mark February 15 on your 
calendar as an evening of LOVE. 
No, I did not get Valentine's Day 
mixed up, it's the night Dr. Jeff 
Ickes from LSU-S will present a 
program on "LOVE" at 7:00 
p.m., in Kilpatrick. If you want to 
know the true meaning of love, 
make sure you are at this

We are all glad that everyone is 
back and ready to play student 
again! We are glad to report that 
each one of our pledges did very 
well with their grades and all are 
up for the big "I," know what I 
mean Verrie! 

A New Years Flathead meeting 
was held this past weekend and 
there were many a wise tale told 
by all participants. The Grand 
Flathead himself, Mike Talley, 
bestowed his initiation ceremony 
upon two worthy but well fer- 
merted bodies, that being Frank 
C. and Craig B. The last names 
are being withheld in order to try 
to protect their identities, but 
hey, we know them well! 

The KA Chapter would like to 
invite everyone to come to our 
Valentine's Party Feb. 14th, that 
is this Tuesday. We know that 
there is nothing to do that night so 
everybody be our Valentine and 
come party with us. Festivities 
start at 8 p.m. and there is a good 
chance, that some tempting 
refreshments will be served! 

Tonight is the 25 cents Reeb 
Party for all you big spenders, so 
everyone take a study break 
around 8 p.m. and bring your bad 
self down to the KA Mansion. 

Other events up and coming 
are high school weekend which 
we anxiously await. Yes, we do 

have the Reeb truck reserved as 
usual. Competition for King of 
the high schools will be stiff so 
watch out Nick! We hope to see a 
crowd tonight and Valentine's 
night, so don't miss it! 


Greetings Tekes and O.D.'s. I 
trust that all of you had an en- 
joyable break and-or interim. 

Omar and Geneo made it to 
Tulsa last month, which 
climaxed in a Texas ghost town 
where Geneo discovered that his 
lunatic driving did $300 worth of 
damage to the Toyopet. 

H and Stiggs ventured north to 
Arkansas, and visited the now 
infamous Sundowner Lounge. 
The H-mobile lost a tire in Hope- 
less Ark. and were rescued by 
Dave W. who arrived with a red- 
head in one hand and $80 in the 
other. H is' forever grateful. 

New Orleans saw a huge 
procession of Tekes at the 1983 
Conclave. Prytanis Tim said it 
was great. Several Centenary 
students, including Kamikaze 
Paula, were caught in the middle 
of several Sugar Bowl brawls at 
Pat O's, and Lulu accosted an ex- 
con, who was forceibly removed 
from the bar after Betsy 
screamed rape. 

Interim classes proved to be a 
learning experience for all in 

Vicksburg, including Sgt. Hardo. 
No longer are fireworks legal in 
V-burg, and the Holiday Inn is 
still trying to prove to the 
Mississippi State Police that 
there were not 23 hookers 
available despite what the sign 
out front said. 

Until next week, study hard 
and go to class. 


The Iota Gamma chapter of 
Chi Omega would like to welcome 
everyone back for the spring 
semester. We would like to 
congratulate Jennifer Blakeman 
and Angela Estill on being fourth 
and second runners up in the 
Miss Shreveport Pageant. 
Congratulations also to Lisa 
Chaisson and "Images," 
everyone involved in "Godspell," 
and to Diana Marble and the 
gymnasts for their successes in 
the past few meets. We would 
also like to congratulate 
everyone in the chapter who 
contributed to making our 
cumulative GPA a high 3.45. Our 
chapter is now looking forward to 
Night Owl. We have decided to 
impose a $5 fine on anyone who 
duplicates what has already been 
said in meeting. Money raised in 
this way will enable us to sponsor 
a child in Mozambique and this 
could not POSSIBLY be con- 
sidered assessing. Or could it?

Ladies Beat LSU, Illinois 

by Laura Luff 

"If we can do as good a job 
against LSU and Illinois as we 
did against Arizona, I'll be 
proud," Coach Vannie Edwards 
said before the Lady Gymnasts 
tri-meet with Louisiana State 
University and the University of 
Illinois February 1. 

Coach Edwards definitely had 
reason to be proud as the 
Ladies'overwhelmed their op- 
ponents with a score of 172.95, 
against 171.50 for the University 
of Illinois, and a third place 
Louisiana State University with 
169.95. The Centenary Ladies 
overcame some tough com- 
petition as the LSU Lady Tigers 
(2-1) are ranked eleventh in the 
nation and averaged 176 in two 
previous meets, while the 
University of Illinois is (0-5), 
against Centenary's (4-1) record. 
Margot Todd-Evans claimed 
her fourth consecutive all-around 
title this season with a 36.45 total. 
Suzanne Reasor finished second 

all-around, scoring a 35.35 total. 
The Ladies' have a strong team 
this year led by three-time Ail- 
American Margot Todd-Evans 
(Sr.), a two time national 
champion on floor and national 
champion on vault, two-time Ail- 
American Janet Stevens (Jr.), on 
floor in All-Around, and Ail- 
American Susan Gibson (Jr.). 
Returning All-Around Katrina 
Kellogg (So.), and specialists 
Jessica Soileau (Sr.), and Diana 
Marble (Jr.). Freshman talent 
includes Suzanne Reasor, second 
on the team in the All-Around 
division, Robin Bickham, Cheri 
Newman, Holly Rucker, and 
Mary Beth Hebert. Coach Vannie 
Edwards is assisted by former 
four-time All-American Jill 

The Ladies next meet will be at 
the L.D. Bell Invitational in 
Hurst, Texas on February 18, and 
the next home meet will be 
February 20, against Tarleton 
State University.

Outlook '84": A New Design for Shreveport 

by Tom Ufert 

Shreveport, on the grow in 
1984! That is the basic interest 
and concern of our Shreveport 
Chamber of Commerce. True this 
oustanding organization has little 
to do with those of us not 
originating from Shreveport. 
However, many times this 
distinguished body of area 
business leaders, young and old, 
raises some intriguing questions 
and provides some creative 
alternatives. Not only in its ac- 
tivities but also in its highly 
controversial forums, does the 
Chamber of Commerce continue 
to offer promising ideas for our 
community, this was such the 
case a week ago when Senator 
Russell Long attended their 
weekly breadfast to discuss his 
viewpoints on the upcoming year. 

His speech, entitled "Outlook 
'84" concerned three major 
issues: U.S. foreign policy, U.S. 
domestic spending, and 
Louisiana. He regarded 
President Reagan's policies in 
South & Central America as 
necessary and proceedingly 
successful. He considered it 
highly feasible to pour millions of 
dollars into U.S. backed regimes 
to protect our political backyard 
from communist infiltration and 
intervention. However, he ad- 
vocated an immediate with- 
drawal of the American peace- 
keeping force in Lebannon. He 
questioned its mission in Beruit 
and declared it as unsecure. He 
also attacked the idea of a 
prepared military force in the 
Middle East as an antagonism to 
the Soviet Union in their 

In the arena of domestic 
spending the Senator was agile 
with facts and figures con- 
sidering his position as Chairman 
of the Senate Finance Com- 
mittee. Senator Long attacked 
the present administration's 
handling of domestic spending. 
Quoting figures, Long cited that 
President Reagan entered office 
with a $950,000,000,000 deficit that 
is now $1,500,000,000,000. It is 
estimated by Long and members 
of his committee that by 1990, the 
deficit will reach $2 trillion and 
1993 $3 trillion (30 percent of the 
annual budget). The Senator also 
began to enumerate on long term 
ways of trimming the deficit. He 
noted that the President has 
attempted to do so through cuts 
in social-welfare programs. The 
Senator pointed out that if you 
eliminated all social programs 

only 58 billion dollars would be 
saved (not including Social 
Security or Welfare). He ad- 
vocated instead of cutting $1 for 
every $4 of spending; make an 
even 50-50 ratio in cuts to spen- 
ding. He stated furthermore that 
the President has not made the 
$50-100 billion cuts necessary to 
discontinue operating the 
government at an increasing $200 
billion deficit annually. 

In the area of local politics and 
finances, Long proved to be an 
avid supporter of Governor-elect 
Edwin Edwards. However, he 
was not one to blame Governor 
David Treen for the present 
economic woes of our state. He 
instead argued that the present 
high rate of unemployment was 
caused by a decline in the oil and 
gas industry. This decline he 
cites as a consequence of an 

unsuccessful deal with Mexico 
caused by the meddling of 
Secretary of Energy James 
Schlessinger (Carter Ad- 

Long was well-received and 
applauded. After a few questions 
from the floor concerning 
defense spending, South 
American defaults, the Balanced 
Budget Amendment, and the up- 
coming presidential election, the 
meeting adjourned. This in- 
formation is provided in a 
hopefully successful attempt, 
though small, to arouse an in- 
terest in controversial public 
affairs. Within a year's time the 
presidential election will be 
closing in the voting on Nov. 4; 
patriotism and democracy, not 
undermining apathy! 

Freedom of Speech Questioned 

by Sarah Donovan 

"Sign, Sign, everywhere a 
sign..." so go the lyrics of a once 
popular song. It seems that signs 
are becoming more and more 
popular here on Centenary's 
campus. If you happened to see 
them, they voiced some common 
sentiments but were nonetheless 
viewed as controversial. 

The signs appeared on the 
campus during, of all times, 
exam week. They were placed 
around the cafeteria, in Mickle 
Hall, on the doors of the library 

basement, in Jackson Hall and 
yes, even on the doors of 
Hamilton Hall. They received 
mixed reviews from faculty, 
students and administration. 
Without directly quoting in- 
dividuals in an effort to protect 
sources, some students voiced 
their hearty approbation as did 
various faculty members. Some 
students shared administrative 
opinion that such a "discipline 
problem" should be curbed. 
Many students feared that their 
approval would result in their 
expulsion from Centenary 

College! Most students, it 
seemed, were unable to see the 
signs because they were torn 
down by second hour of classes. 

The signs carried messages 
concerning students' right to 
drink on campus, 1984 signs that 
Big Brother was controlling our 
actions and our thoughts, cen- 
sorship in our Yoncopin and the 
Conglomerate by the ad- 
ministration, and students' rights 
for free expression. Dr. Webb 
was reported to have seen the 
signs on the windows of the 

cafeteria, read them and 
returned to his office. One 
student took it upon herself to 
tear down the signs. Another 
student wrote his own sign ac- 
cusing the sign makers of 
cowardice since they didn't sign 
their names to them. Some of the 
signs were endorsed by a 
"Campaign for Student 

Is this the work of a single 
individual, of a small group of 
Centenary students, of a large 

group of students? Furthermore, 
does anyone have the right to 
print such signs; and, are those 
who do, at risk of expulsion? 
More important, do these signs 
accurately depict the sentiments 
of Centenary students? If so, is 
there anything we as students 
can do to change certain policies 
at Centenary; or, do we feel these 
policies need to be changed? Talk 
to your SGA representative and 
write the Conglomerate. Let your 
views on this new development 
be heard! Remember it's your 
school and your opinion counts.

Senate Minutes 

By Jim Ogden 

(This summarizes the Senate 
Meeting of February 14 and in no 
way represents the official 
minutes of the Student Senate) 

The Tuesday, February 14, 
meeting of the Student Senate 
was called to order by President 
Thurndotte Baughman at 11:00 
a.m. The minutes of the last 
meeting were approved. 

Treasurer Diane Fowler 
reported that the SGA is to 
receive $34,377.25 for the spring 
semester from the 691 full-time 
students. As of January 31, 1982 
the SGA had on hand $6,758.68, 
but the amount was subject to 
more verification. 

The Entertainment Committee 
reported nothing new from 
chairman Michael Hayes, but 

Forums Committee chairman 
Carole Powell announced that 
Mr. Harold Saunders — the 
Woodrow Wilson speaker for 
April 29 — will arrive that Sun- 
day and probably stay for the 
entire week until the following 
Saturday. Mr. Mau, an orchestra 
conductor from the People's 
Republic of China, is slated to be 
on campus the week of March 13. 
A motion from the floor was 
introduced that he be paid 
$500.00, and the motion carried. 

LThe Elections Committee 
proposed that the special vote to 
change the by-laws concerning 
SGA members serving on such 
bodies as the honor court, 
judicial board, dorm council, and 
student-faculty discipline 
committee be held on February 

Under Media Reports, Dawn 
Calhoun reported the Youncopin 

was under the budget submitted 
at the year's beginning. Lisa 
Illing, assistant editor of the 
Conglomerate, reported that 
although the paper was currently 
solvent, the newspaper will be 
running a deficit at the current 
level of spending. This loss is 
being incurred through ad- 
vertiser's bankruptcies, refusal 
to pay for ads, as well as lack of 
sufficient ad sales. Lisa proposed 
a whole new budget, staff 
changes, salary increases, and 
restructuring payments to 
workers. Lisa also asked that the 
Conglomerate's typewriter 
either be repaired or replaced, 
with a new typewriter to possibly 
be shared with KSCL. To meet 
the semester's demands, the 
Senate approved $500.00, linked 
to a partial restoration of SGA 
ads such as featured in previous 
years. KSCL station manager 

Betsy Camp reported that the 
station's planned improvements 
were already underway, the 
budget was being met, and 
discussed plans for the next year. 
Brad Hoge discussed this 
semester's Pegasus and his plans 
for improving the graphics and 
design. Brad reported that he 
purchased a typewriter out of his 
own funds for $150.00 for 
Pegasus. $343.00 was approved 
by the Senate to cover extra 
expenses by Pegasus. A motion 
was made that all budget matters 
for media be considered at a later 
meeting, and the motion carried. 
Under old business, the sketch 
donated to the SGA to go in the 
sub was presented. The Senate 
voted to decide on a frame at 
semester's end. Senator Brad 
Lyon reported the Blood Drive 
will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 
p.m. April 4, in the SUB. Michael 

Hayes was selected to fill the 
vacancy on Ed Pol Committee. 
Kathy Heard reported that the 
spring SGA calendar was now 

A motion was made by Diane 
Fowler that the SGA bring before 
the Student Life Committee a 
request to review and 
modification of the expectations 
the college holds for its students 
as outlined in the Student Hand- 
book. These areas included 
specific areas of conduct for 
which a student is subject to 
disciplinary action as well as a 
complete investigation and 
review of the methods and 
procedures of the judicial 
system, especially the judicial 
referral board and the role of the 
administration, staff, and faculty 
in this system. The motion 
carried. The meeting was ad- 
jorned at 12:10. 

High Schools gather for Centenary Quiz Bowl 

by Tom Ufert 
Every year Centenary hosts 
the Centenary Quiz Bowl. This 
competition provides the op- 
portunity for area high school 
students to display their 
academic knowledge and skills in 
an attempt to gain hundreds of 
dollars in scholarships for their 
schools. The contest, sponsored 
by Fabsteel of Louisiana, is one 
of trivia, science, history, 
spelling and vocabulary, 

various foreign languages, 
current events, and everyday 

The Quiz Bwl, proceeding 
through its eight season, began 
on Jan. 14. On that Saturday 
some 34 schools, 170 competitors 
and their coaches descended 
upon our campus to do battle in 
the pre-liminary round. For four 
hours teams fought long and hard 
through 2-10 minute halves. As is 
usual some teams were well 

balanced and some were 
delicately held together by one 
outstanding team member. All- 
in-all, the teams appeared to 
have studied well and known 
their facts and figures. Sixteen 
teams advanced to the quarter- 
finals and the official tapings. 

Throughout the tapings, teams 
are awarded Fabsteel 
Scholarships to Centenary. The 
losers receive a $200.00 and the 
victors gain a birth in the semi- 

finals as well as their $300.00 
scholarship, the finalists each 
gain beautiful trophies, large 
scholarships, and the prestige of 
claiming, for one year, to be the 
champions of the only college 
quiz bowl competition in the Ark- 
La-Tex area. 

As of yet, the quarter-finals are 
only half-completed. It is also 
well known, that no team is 
assured an easy chance. In the 

first round of tapings, Texas High 
of Texarkana, the defending 
champions, lost to Ruston High 
School. As the competition 
continues, the Conglomerate 
wishes to congratulate Laura 
Gallagher and her staff on a job 
well done. As well, Channel 12 
(KSLA), Jeff Edmonds (KVKI), 
and Professor Beth Leuck ("da 
Judge") are to all be com-

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Having spent the last week 
languishing in front of the tube

The Iota Gamma chapter of 
Chi Omega would like to welcome 
our chapter visitor to Centenary 
College this week. We hope that 
she enjoys her stay here. We 
would like to extend a belated 
thank-you to the Theta Chi's for 
their incredible Belated New 
Year's party. Thanks also to our 
social chairmen Wynne Burton 
and Kathy Slaney for Night Owl, 
to the TKE's for the use of their 
party tape, to David Hoffpauir 
for his PA system, and to Susan 
Scott for the use of her stereo. 
Cynthia, get well soon. We all 
miss you, and so does Chip. Good 
luck to the Theta Chi's on their 
Rattle Roundup (?) Regional 
Conference and to Diana and the 
gymnasts on their meet this 
weekend. Hang in there pledges, 
it won't be long. 

We hope everybody had a 
happy Valentines Day. If you are 
in the minority of people who 
didn't, then you missed our 
Tuesday night V.D. Party.

Class is deligently working on 
other various tasks of interest. 
They are all trying to renovate 
Shreveport with the help of the

The KA basketball teams are 
really pumped up after their two 
week long basketball camp with 
the Harlem Globetrotters. The 
only thing is that we've grown 
accustomed to shooting at gar- 
bage cans instead of hoops! The 
KA's won $100 (dollars) for being 
the largest organization at the 
Dome for the McDonald's 
commercial which nobody knew 
about. We feel it is our duty as 
victors of this prestigious and 
noteworthy event to go out and 
blow every penny of this prize 
money on recruiting a better 
basketball player for next year's 
commercial! Keep your eyes 
peeled for quarter Reeb an- 
nouncements concerning 
tonight's possible party, of which 
I am not sure of at this very 

One last note, we would like to 
apologize to the Theta Chi's, 
Sig's, and TKE's for keeping 
them up past their bed times last 
Friday. We realize there are 
more important things to do at 
the wee hours of dawn, but hey, 
we couldn't think of any at the 
time! See you Greek Beat freaks 
next week - DAH!

Well, a fantastic Interim was 
had by all. It proved to be an 
exciting month. However these 
are the opinions of this editor and 
in no way represent the opinions 
of the free world and Texas. 
Dallas will never necover from 
the twilight antics of the rap- 
scalions who are known by the 
names of Brothers Johnny Jesus, 
Barely Barry, Yoda the amazing, 
Twig minus the Twig family, 
Snotty, Pube, and THE ODD. 
Snotty found a new money clip 
and it was his money Mr. 
Manager! Continuing on this 
magical journey, he and Pube 
had a wrestling match on 
Barely's front yard with a two 
fall time limit or remaining TV 
time. The match however was 
stopped after 2:45 because the 
wrestlers never found each other. 
At least they didn't wake up Mr. 
Breit, who was heard to say, 

"Come on boys, let's go inside." 
As Snotty moved his fingers to his 
lips he delicately whispered, 
"OK, but we mustn't wake Mr. 
Breit." The End. (Soundtrack 
available on Bantam Records.) 

We'd like to commend the 
Choir for their fantastic job on 
Godspell! We're especially proud 
of Ron "can you dig it?" Whitler 
and Celia "MTV" Sirman. Good 
job Brother and Little Sis! 

And now for something that is 
serious. An extremely good and 
grownup time was had by those 
who were lucky enough to attend 
the .Smith-Hadley Film 
Festival. It was entertaining, as 
well as educational. Ninja en- 
joyed it. It was a nice layed-back 
way to spend Friday night. We all 
know the rest was well due after 
the District Conclave party. In 
the words of Ninja, "I may never 
again see the red punch and that 
would be too soon." District 
Conclave went very well, despite 
the attack of Jungle (Juice) 

Well, hope to see you again 
next week. Say hi to all your 
neighbors and don't forget to 
brush your teeth every time the 
phone rings and all so remember 
that if you don't here the phone 
ring you'll know that its me. Tune 
in same time, same column, 
same jokes, same people doing 
the impossible, same punc- 
tuation, same grammatical 
mistakes, same etc. A.E.K.

About two weeks ago, we were 
all given the rare chance to hear 
and see the magnificent 
production of Godspell. How 
unusual, how creative, how 
modern, how relevant, and how 
youthful the interim students of 
Centenary portrayed an all-time 

religious classic. It is highly 
uncommon to see such a 
theological conception translated 
into a more acceptable and 
relatable moral viewpoint. With 
the combination of religious 
morals, modernized characters 
and costumes, outstanding stage 
production, and exquisite choral 

and musical ability, these

A Family That Graduates together 

By David Sewell 

Graduation day at Centenary 
will see a grandfather and 
granddaughter receive their 
diplomas together. 

Investment banker and Board 
of trustees member Russell 
Barrow will receive his 
Bachelor's degree in Business, at 
the same time his grand- 
daughter, Martha Peacock, will 
be presented with her degree in 
English. Political Science, and 

Elementary Education. 

Russell Barrow has been at- 
tending Centenary since this past 
fall. He was enrolled in the 
University of Texas from 1918 to 

1921, but discontinued his studies 
to go to work. After about 50 
years, having made a successful 
living in the Business field, he 
decided to continue his studies. 
He found he "had the time," and 
he thought he would get his 

Mr. Barrow thinks well of his 
fellow Centenary students, and 
they of him. Patrick Sewell, a 
Centenary student who had a 
class with Russell last semester, 
said that he conveys a feeling of 
student camraderie. "He has no 
great sense of seniority, he in- 
troduces himself to everyone as 
'Russell' and shakes their hand." 
A Board of Trustees member 
since 1957, Russell retains his 
good feelings about the school. "I

Metropolis is set in the year 
2000 when the world is divided 
into two classes. The first is the 
aristocracy that lives amidst 
gardens and skyscrapers. The 
second is the workers— hopeless, 
downtrodden individuals who are 
virtual slaves to the monstrous 
machines they tend beneath the 
surface of this world. When the 
son of the Master of Metropolis 
falls in love with a girl from the 
lower classes, he begins a 
journey of self-discovery that 
eventually leads to a violent 
confrontation between these two 
classes. Metropolis, one of the 
best examples of German 
Exressionism on film, took over a 
year to film and employed over 
36,000 actors and actresses.

On Thursday, February 23 at

Jackson Hall, the Centenary 
Film Society will present Carlos 
Saura's recent Spanish film Cria. 
Admission is $2. $1 for students 
and senior citizens. C. P. Credit is 

Cria explores the mysteries 
and pains of a young girl growing 
up. Ana (played by Ana Torrent, 
the star of The Spirit of the 
Beehive) is the nine year old 
dheroine of Cria. She has an 
uncanny talent for observing and 
understanding scenes not meant 
for her eyes. She watches bitter 
quarrels between her parents 
and witnesses her mother's 
painful illness. Ultimately, this 
film is about the darker side of 
childhood, about superstition, 
knowledge, and the loss of in- 
nocence. Vincent Canby wrote in 
The New York Times: "A 
beautifully acted, haunting 
movie with two superb per- 
formances by Miss Torrent and 
Miss Chaplin."

stitution that will all but destroy 
the Separation of Powers that 
Centenary students once fought 
hard to attain. The Constitution 
now reads under Article IV 
Section A, entitled Separation of 

1. No student may serve on 
more than one of the following 

a. S.G.A. 

b. Judicial Board 

c. Student-Faculty Discipline 

d. Honor Court 

e. Dorm Council 

If passed, the proposed 
amendment will strike "a. 
S.G.A." from the bodies 
presently listed. The Preamble to 
the S.G.A. constitution provides 
that, "the S.G.A. will work 
toward improving Centenary's 
community atmosphere and 
toward bettering student life." 

We feel that the proposed change 
will hinder student involvement 
due to Senators' domination of 
positions on the Judicial Board, 
Student-Faculty Discipline 
Committee and Dorm Councils, 
allowed by the change. After all, 
these judicial bodies were meant 
to serve the students, not the 

The S.G.A. has access to 
Judicial Board membership 
through election procedure. The 
election of Judicial Board 
members is handled by the 
Elections committee, Article I 
section F No. 2c) 2 of the electoral 
S.G.A. constitution says that, "all 
electoral disputes shall be ruled 
upon by the Senate." Suppose a 
member of the S.G.A. were 
running for a position on the 
Judicial Board. If he or she 
wished to dispute the election, he 
or she would have direct access 
to the S.G.A. ruling. The election 
results would be invalidated and 
a new election called for. Or 

suppose a Senator who wished to 
serve on the Judicial Board 
wanted to remove a Judicial 
Board member. By charging him 
or her with dereliction of duty 
and with a Senate conviction the 
Judicial Board member would be 
removed from office (Article II 
Judicial Branches of the S.G.A. 
B. Judicial Board 5. Im- 
peachment Procedure) . With this 
vacancy to be filled, the Senate 
By-Laws Article XIII provides 
for the Senate selection of a 
representative to fill the vacant 
position(s) - and who better to fill 
it with than a Senator? (This will 
be allowed if the proposed 
amendment passes). An ad- 
ditional amendment would be 
required to change Article II 
section B. Judicial Board, 2) 
qualification c) stating that a 
member of the Judicial Board 
cannot "be a member of any 
dorm council, S.G.A., Student- 
Faculty Committee, Honor 
Court, or hold a Resident 
Assistant position." The mere 

fact that this Separation of 
Powers is provided for twice in 
our constitution speaks of the 
importance of the Separation of 
Powers the constitution 

The S.G.A. has access to the 
Student-Faculty Discipline 
Committee through the 
nominations procedure.* The 
S.G.A. constitution provides 
(Article II Section C) that 
members of the Student-Faculty 
Discipline Committee shall be 
nominated by a majority vote of 
the Senate. The proposed change 
would provide a Senator with a 
distinct advantage over a non- 
senator who wished to fill a 

The S.G.A. has accessed to the 
dorm councils. Article II section 
A. Dorm Councils No. 2 provides 
for "annual review and 
alteration by the Senate." A 
dorm council member who was 
also serving on the Senate would 
be more influential in obtaining 

Student Funds (and could also be 
serving as the S.G.A. Treasurer). 

Our current Student Govern- 
ment structure provides a 
system of checks and balances 
that protects students from 
possible abuses by an individual 
or any group of students. 
Allowing students to serve on 
both a judicial board and a 
legislative body simultaneously 
(provided by the proposed 
amendment) destroys the 
protection for the students that 
our current constitution 

In closing we feel that students 
advocating this amendment have 
an obligation to prove this 
proposed amendment's ability to 
enhance student life and in- 
volvement, to the student body. 
We have to ask ourselves 
whether or not we are going to 
pattern and conduct ourselves 
like true, effective government 
bodies? If we are, then 
Separation of Powers is a fun- 
damental must! 

Proposed Amendment Questioned 

In this issue of the 
Conglomerate is a detailed 
summary of proposed amend- 
ment changes in the present SGA 

constitution. The changes 
proposed will essentially allow 
officials of the Student Govern- 
ment Association to also par- 
ticipate as members of the 
Judicial Board, Honor Court, 
Student-Faculty Disciplinary 
Committee, and the various 

Dormatory Councils. When the 
constitution was composed, its 

authors provided for the 
necessary separation of powers. 
As is the case in our own national 

government, the executive 
(SGA) branch oversees the 
legislative (Senate) branch, the 
judiciary (Honor Court) branch, 
and vice versa. 

The above mentioned article 
also clearly states the need for a 
separation of powers. It further 
illustrates a few examples of 
uncomfortable and undesirable 
situations that may arise, if the 

proposed changes are agreed- 
upon by the student body. 
However, this article merely 
points out the technicalities. It 
does not refer to the possible 
reasons behind the proposed 

amendment. The Conglomerate 
staff has learned that members 
of the Senate (undoubtedly 

through ignorance of the con- 
stitutional restrictions or through 
complete lack of awareness of 
the problem) have broken con- 
stitutional law. These officials 

have become members of one or 
the other of the four 
organizations which is prohibited 

by our student constitution. It is 
not the purpose of this article to 
incriminate or destroy the 
images of these distinguished 
leaders. It is rather our intention 
to point out that a discrepancy in 

the leadership bracket at Cen- 
tenary College, exists. 

The proposed amendment will 
allow for the virtual distinction 
of the separation of powers. We 
wish to note that the other four 
organizations are all related to 
the judiciary process from high 
to low. This process and its 
essential democratic cor- 
nerstones must be preserved. 

For a member of the SGA-Senate 
to hold a position in one of the 
other four organizations, would 
create a division of loyalty and 
dedication. A division that in the 
future could be catastrophic to 

the basic key-points of our self- 
governing process. 

It is not the responsibility of the 
Conglomerate, its staff, or its 
readers to judge the lightness or 
wrongness of the present 
situation. However, it is our duty 
to point it out and solve the 
problem. We stand firm, in ac- 
cordance with basic democratic 
philosphies, by officially op- 
posing this proposed change in 
our present student constitution. 
Furthermore we advise each and 
every student to carefully read 
and consider the SGA con- 
stitution, (located in the Student 
Handbook), before casting his or 
her vote on February 28. 

Page 2— THE CONGLOMERATE— Thursday, February 23, 1984 


Dear Editor, 

In last week's issue of the 
Conglomerate there appeared an 
article entitled "Freedom of 
Speech Questioned." As a 
member of the Conglomerate 
staff, I only wish to compliment 
this fine piece of journalism. 
Whether it is one of brilliance or 
mediocrity makes no difference ; 
even though I think that the 
quality is without question some 
of the finest in style. The author 
should be commended for his-her 
determination to address con- 
troversial and pertient situations 
and questions. It is this type of 

writer that is necessary for a 
good college newspaper. It is 
necessary to have "gutsy" 
reporters and columnists! 
Without such authors in the 
press, like Woodward & Bern- 
stien of the Washington Post, 
important issues would never be 
brought to the attention of the 
public. It is this type of person in 
the aFea of the media, that 
continually emphasizes the need 
for the freedom of the press. I 
wish to emphasize however, that 
not everything should be released 
to the media and the public for 
obvious reasons of security and 


Furthermore, I wish to en- 
courage this author and his-her 
rare sense of responsibility, 
patriotism, and dedication. I 
personally look forward to many 
more illustrations from this 
Sarah Donovan. Continue my 
friend, to awaken us to the issues 
of our day and these important 
questions that we, as college 
students at Centenary, should 
have the nerve to address!

Senate Minutes 

by Scott C. Andrews 

(This summarizes the Senate 
Meeting of February 21 and in no 
way represents the official 
minutes of the Student Senate.) 

The Tuesday, February 21 
meeting of the Student Govern- 
ment Association was called to 
order by Vice-President Alyce 
Boudreaux at 11:10 a.m. The 
minutes were approved for the 
last meeting, President Baugh- 
man arrived, and business was 

Under "Old Business" Bill Ball 
introduced a motion to raise 
student fees $10.00 per semester. 
This would provide a needed 
increase in funds for the 
respective medias. It was 
suggested that if no such increase 

occurred it could be necessary to 
cut one of the existing medias. 
Under "New Business" 
farewells were given to Carolyn 
Benham who recently resigned 
as SGA Secretary. In light of the 
fact that Benham has served a 
part of this semester as 
secretary, the decision was made 
that she would receive ap- 
proximately $40.00 of her $150.00 
per semester officers salary. 
Elections will be held within the 
next few weeks to replace the 
now vacant secretarial position. 
The next order was concerning 
the Senators presently serving on 
various Dorm Councils. It is a 
violation of the SGA Constitution 
and President Baughman made 
the suggestion that the persons in 
violation either resign from their 

Dorm Council or resign their 
Senatorial duties until such time 
as the amendment to the con- 
stitution is voted on by the 
student body. Their presence on 
both governmental bodies had 
been unnoticed and therefore 
overlooked until the end of last 

If any of the aforementioned 
Senators choose to resign from 
the SGA, elections to replace 
them will take place at the same 
time as Secretarial elections. 

It was mentioned that 
reprinting of the student hand- 
book would take place this 
summer and any poroposed 
amendments should be made to 
the Student Life Committee. 

Dean Anders informed the SGA 
that an artists conception of the 



Dr. Webb will be in the Cof- 
feehouse the evening of February 
28 at 7:00 p.m., for an informal 
question and answer session. 
This will be an excellent time to 
meet the President on an in- 
formal bases and ask him some 
of the questions that have been on 
your mind. Refreshments will be

will be the last year of the tour 
and it will be a show you won't 
want to miss. 

college beautification plan is on 
display in the library for all who 
were interested. 

The official meeting was ad- 
iourned at 11:38 a.m. 

At 11:42, an unofficial meeting 
of "interested students" took 
place concerning amendments to 
be suggested to the Student Life 
Committee. These amendments 
were regarding the section en- 
titled "Specific Areas of Conduct 
For Which Any Student Is Sub- 
ject to Disciplinary Action" 
located on page 3 of the Student 
Handbook. Specifically in 
question were numbers 3 
(Conduct Affecting a Student's 
Suitability), 5 (Failure to 
Comply), 12 (Obstruction of 

Proceedings or Activities), and 
13 (Organizations, Public Ex- 
pression) with distance being 
kept from number 1 (Alcoholic 
Beverages). The alcohol issue 
was avoided for fear of the 
controversialism involved. The 
outcomne of the "interested 
students" meeting left Diane 
Fowler to present these areas for 
consideration to the Student Life 
Committee at a meeting to be 
held at 7: 15 Wednesday morning. 

The safest way to prepare for 
the future is to prepare to be 
surprised, as you surely will be.

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Lambs, love, and baseball. 
Rumor has it that spring is on its 

Everywhere, people are 
beginning to think warm 
thoughts (swimming, tennis, air 
conditioning bills) and to buy cool 
clothes. Children are foaming at 
the mouth and ready to run 
rampant in warm spring rain. 
Feet and toes are twitching and 
ready to wander through new 
grass. It's enough to make you 

First of all, it's not even warm 
yet. Who wants to think about 
shorts when longjohns are still 
the staple of everyday clothing? 
Who could even think of swim- 
ming when a box of kleenex and a 
bottle of cough medicine are 
one's best friends? And why think 
about moving the thermostat up 
to 72 degrees when it's already 
there and burning up your 

I don't believe in looking ahead 
to other seasons. None of them 
seem so bad when you are in 
them — except spring. Spring 
puts too much pressure on 
people. We are expected to fall in 
love. I fell in love during spring- 
once. Just once. Summer came, I 
put on my bathing suit, and he 
left me. So much for springtime 
love afairs. 

Baseball comes around in 
spring. We get this strange urge 
to go to the ballpark, eat hot dogs, 
and yell for our side. I don't like 
that. The last time I went to a 
baseball game, I ate so much that 
my date had to roll me down the 
aisle to go back for more, and 
when I yelled for our side, a 
spray of finely ground peanuts 
new into the hair of the man in 
front of me. We didn't stay for the 
next inning. 

Spring is supposed to be a time 
of rain and flowers. Actually, it is 
a time of mud and flood. My 
flowers never come up because 

pansies don't have two foot stems 
to poke through the water that 
collects in my yard. And I don't 
bother buying new white shoes 
for spring anymore because they 
turn brown just like the mud in 
the street, on my car, and ground 
into the carpet. 

Birds come back in the spring- 
They build nests, and lay eggs- 
The eggs hatch, and the baby 
birds cry for food day and nightf- 
all in our chimney. 

Our chimneys are a real hot 
spot for neighborhood birds. We 
have a friendly woodpecker who 
returns every spring to peck at 
our chimney — our metal chimney 
— at six o'clock in the morning ' 
think he's friendly with the one 
who works on the tree outside my 
window at the same time. 

Spring is ok. Lambs com e 
around, they bleat and look cute 
and biblical. Then they grow into 
sheep, are sheared, and becom e 
my new wool skirt. 

I like spring. 

Toxic Chemicals, Possible 
New State Drink? 

Thursday, February 23, 1984— THE CONGLOMERATE— Pfcge 3 

Job Opportunities 

by David Dewell 

Pollutants such as TOC (total 
Organic Carbon), toxic and 
carcenogeic, and Fecal 
Cloliform, which transmits 
disease causing organisms, are 
only two of the 16 items of the list 
of pollutants that 23 corporations 
in Louisiana have been accused 
of dumping excess amounts of 
into state waterways. 

The Delta chapter of the 
Louisiana State Sierra Club has 
served notice to 23 corporations 
in Louisiana of its intention to file 
suit against them for consistent 
violation of the Clean Waters Act. 
"The violations have persisted 
without diligent governmental 
intervention for periods of 3 to 6 
years," says Dr. Patrick Sewell, 
Chairperson of the State Sierra 
Club. In a recent article by the 
Baton Rouge Morning Advocate, 
Dr. Sewell stated that "there are 
tons of chemicals going into the 
Mississippi River and lots of 
people drinking the water 
downstream. These companies 

have consistently exceeded their 
permits. We think its time they 
stop, but the government isn't 
doing anything." 

Section 309 (d) of the Louisiana 
Water Pollution Control Act 
states that any person who 
violates a condition or limit of a 
pollution discharge permit shall 
be subject to a civil penalty not 
to exceed 10,000 dollars per day of 
such violation. Self-reported 
statistics sent to the Delta 
chapter show that from July of 
1979 to April of 1983 the Country 
Pride Food Company of Nat- 
chitoches, Louisiana, obeyed the 
limitations of the dumping of 
chemicals produced by their 
corporation, one time, out of 190 
dumpings. In July, August of 
1979, and February of 1982 
amounts of Fecal Coliform were 
dumped that were marked of the 
statistics as "TNTC," (too 
numerous to count). 

Even closer to our water 
supply in Shreveport is the Kerr- 

McGee Refining Corporation's 
Cotton Valley location, about an 
hour or so from Shreveport. 
Disposing of chemicals ranging 
from Sulfide, which can be toxic 
to fish, to TSS (Total suspended 
Solids), which "Affect bottom life 
when settle; adversely affect 
fish; block sunlight which 
inhibits food production and 
alters water temperature," the 
Cotton Valley Refinery complied 
with their pollutant limitations, 
once, also. Once, some where 
between December of 1980 and 
February of 1983. 

In the article by the Baton 
Rouge Morning Advocate, Fred 
Loy, the Head of the Louisiana 
Chemical Association said 
"We're in compliance, if they 
want to sue us, let them come 
right ahead." 

It looks as though Mr. Loy will

"This above all — to thine 
ownself be true, and it must 
follow, as the night the day, thou 
canst not then be false to any 

Shakespeare; Hamlet 

Consider carefully my friends, 
this quote from one of 
Shakespeare's greatest plays. 
Throughout the play, Hamlet is in 
a psychological struggle with his 
"inner-self" that is so real and 
pertenant to our everyday lives. 
Ask yourself, how does this quote 
pertain to me, my feelings, my 
actions, my appearance, my 
dignity, my entire "being." Over 
the years that a single human 
being exists on this small dust- 
speck in space, very rarely does 
that person thrive on action, a 
keen desire for the unknown, or 
the great joy of discovering one's 
self! Many philosophers, to this 
day, regard one philosophical 
commandment as a basic cor- 
nerstone in the key to a happy 
and fulfilling life; as Plato writes 
us, "Know thyself." We so often 
trod through our lives carefree, 
uncaring, and unknowing. Would 
not the few years of life, that God 
has so graciously given us, be 
more colorful and have more 
character if we had more dignity 
and honor in ourselves and our 

accomplishments? "How few 
know their own good, or knowing 
it, pursue" (Juvenal). 

We all came to Centenary with 
the same basic goal in mind; an 
education (whether it be in 
knowledge, life, or the knowledge 
of life). No matter what the 
expectations, intentions, or final 
results; this fact remains the 
same. However, we each are 
different. We all came from 
different backgrounds; we all 
have different interests; we all 
have different needs and desires; 
and we all have different talents! 
It is here that I make my first 
challenge to each member of the 
Centenary family. SEIZE THE 
DAY! Make use of yourself and 
the rare gifts you have. Add color 
to this stale ordinary world and 
add character to your own life, 
for as Heraclitus tells us, 
"Character is destiny." We 
either enhance or diminish our 
destinies by the basic 
philosophies and ideals that 
guide us. Those that choose to sit 
back, watch the world go by, 
complain and blame are the ones 
who are truly afraid that they 
might fail. "Fail in what?" you 
may ask. In life itself! "Heaven 
ne'er helps the men who will not 
act." (Sophocles) However, 
those that choose to be movers 
and shakers advance the causes 

Professor Boulding to speak 

Professor Kenneth Boulding — 
father, scholar, Friend, 
economist, social scientist, ar- 
tist, poet, peacemaker — will 
speak on "Stable Peace as the 
only National Security" on 
Thursday, February 23 at 11:10 
a.m. Currently Distinguished 
Professor Emeritus at the 
University of Colorado, 
Professor Boulding has held 
numerous academic positions 
and has served as president of 
several professional 
organizations. He comes to 
Centenary from United Nations 
University, Tokyo, Japan where 
he has been a Visiting Scholar 
since the beginning of the year. 

Professor Boulding has written 

over 30 books and is probably 
best known for his work on grants 
economics (one-way transfer of 
economic goods) and on peace 
research. His work on conflict 
resolution is a sterling example 
of the utility of the social 
sciences. Professor Boulding's 
peace research takes the concept 
of "peace" out of the realm of 
abstraction and lodges it 
securely in the real world of 
human possibilities. It is a social 
science full of hope and one which 
does not ignore the vagaries of 
human behavior. 

Don't miss the Convocation this 
Thursday! It promises to be 
challenging and uplifting! 

of the entire human race. True 
their lives may be more 
tumultuous because of the im- 
portance they place on action. 
But regardless of its con- 
sequences they gain more wealth 
from life than the richest man on 
earth! So my friends, I appeal to 
you to take the risks; "Resolve to 
be thyself; and know that he who 
finds himself, loses his misery!" 
(Matthew Arnold) 

And now I challenge you a 
second time. True it is very 
difficult to discover who you are, 
("Who in the world am I? Ah, 
that's the greatest puzzle." — 
Lewis Carroll); but "Self con- 
fidence is the first requisite to 
great undertakings" (Samuel 
Johnson). Without confidence in 
yourself and your total being, 
others will have the same 
regards. It is vital to portray an 
esteemed picture of oneself, not 
overdone but one of dignity, 
honor, and pride. You may ask, 
"Why must I project myself 
well?" Human beings, rightly or 
wrongly, judge each other and 
the projects they undertake. 
Furthermore "No man is an 
island..." (Donne). Each of us 
requires acceptance and desires 
the approval of our fellow men. It 
is for these reasons I challenge 
you to take pride in your outward 
personage and state of living or 

People who know all the an- 
swers do not make good teachers. 
Their own closure closes off the 
student's mind. It is those who 
know the questions rather than 
the answers who are the great

decade many people have 
generalized our age group, our 
status as college students, and 
students of Centenary. Their 
generalities have neither been

They base their reasonings upon

what is moral and immoral.

China: A Different Way Of Life 

by Lisa Parker 

(Editor's Note: This article is 
the best essay turned in by a 
Centenary student who par- 
ticipated in the China interim. 
Sponsored by Dr. Royce Shaw, 
the tour included stops at the 
Great Wall, Peking, Jinan, Wuxi, 
Qufu.Shanghqi, and Hangzhou. 
Centenary students who went on 
the trip were Jennie Burns, 
Crissy Clarke, Connie Getsinger, 
Lisa and Susan Illing, Thad 
Mayo, Lisa Parker, Chris Smith 
and Wayne Williams.) 

Having an opportunity to 
discover the country of China on 
a first hand basis, is a privilege 
for which I will always be 
grateful. My experiences in 
China have helped to enlighten 
my realization on how other 
cultures live. The Chinese culture 
is one that is very different than 
the American culture. 

Probably the biggest dif- 
ference between the American 
and Chinese cultures is the 
freedom that Americans are 
allowed and that Communism 
does not allow the Chinese 
people. Most areas are controlled 
by the government such as 
family life, education, salary, 
food, and so forth. 

Because of the extreme 
population in China which is over 
1 billion, family life in China is 
controlled. Couples are allowed 
to have only one child. This law is 
the product of the teachings of 
the Cultural Revolution. If a 
family complies and has only one 
child, the government rewards 
the family by taking care of some 
of the childs medical needs along 
with some other compensations. 
On the other hand if a couple has 
two children, the government 
gives no compensation at all. 
Finally, if the couple has more 
than two children, the family is 
fined by the government. 

The government keeps an 
especially tight grip on the 
education of the Chinese people. I 
found China to be very behind in 
the general education of its 
people. It is true that China is a 
very primitive land in com- 
parison with our American 
standards. The Chinese put a 
great deal of emphasis on their 
ancient history which is im- 
portant, but in so doing they have 
deleted knowledge about present 
advances in the modern world. 
Many of the people that I came in 
contact with were ignorant of the 
achievements and advances that 
the modern world had to offer 
them. An American could notice 
this immediately upon entering 
the country. There are little 

polution controls, therefore, 
people are forced to walk the 
streets wearing surgical masks 
to protect themselves. Modern 
restroom facilities are not 
always available for tourists 
much less for the Chinese people. 
Also, in a walk down an open 
market, a tourist knows that 
refrigeration of meats and other 
foods is practically unheard of. 
These are just a few of the en- 

While in Jinan, I had the 
pleasure of becoming acquainted 
with a hotel clerk named Jin Xiau 
bi. She was my age (21), and was 
a student in the city. We became 
acquainted when one night she 
came to my room and asked me 
to record her next lesson in her 
English textbook, so that she 
could learn the correct 
pronunciation of her English 
words. I was flattered and so I 
obliged her. I felt very sad 
though, because I knew that she 
was just like I was, a student 
studying for her next exam, but I 
knew that she did not have the 
opportunity to advance and move 
ahead like I did. She might never 
know the freedom to choose her 
life's work or study to become 

exactly what she desires like I do. 
Jin was not uncommon though, 
because I felt a loss of potential 
throughout my visit in China. Not 
every Chinese person has the 
opportunity to attend college, 
some mi'st work, and there is not 
the advantages of financial aid as 
there are in America. I am sure 
some financial aid exists, but not 
to the extent that it does in 

An average worker in China 
earns anywhere from 60 to 80 
yuan a month. Translated, this 
comes to about 30 to 40 American 
dollars a month. The living ex- 
penses in China are much 
cheaper, allowing an average 
existence. An average worker's 
rent expense is only around 5 
percent of his monthly pay which 
is quite a bit less than what the 
average American would pay 
from his monthly salary for rent. 
Nevertheless, an American 
would find living in China on an 
average salary quite different 
than living on the average in 

One of the most enjoyable 
experiences that I encountered 
while in China was our visit to the 
kindergarten in Jinan. The 

children were so well behaved 
and their performances were 
delightful. My major at Cen- 
tenary College is Elementary 
Education so I found the young 
Chinese children fascinating. I 
was very impressed with their 
advanced talents in the arts. 
Here, in America, there is a great 
deal of emphasis on the arts, but 
not to the degree that is in China. 
Discipline is an obvious element 
in the Chinese kindergarten; a 
quality that is admired by any 
elementary teacher in America. 
China is of course dominated 
by the Communist Party, 
however, not every Chinese 
person is Communist. I found 
that the Chinese have differing 
views about the state of their 
country just as we Americans 
have different views about our 
country. This was brought to my 
attention first in Jinan as our 
guide was telling us how the 
Cultural Revolution had made 
possible the lovely parks for the 
Chinese people to enjoy which 
were once only permissible to the 
wealthy. I assumed that the 
Chinese people as a whole 
thought that the Cultural 
Revolution had helped the 

demise of the common man on 
the average. But when touring 
the temples in Qufu, the home of 
Confusious, I found our guide to 
be critical of the government that 
was under the Cultural 
Revolution. This was due to the 
fact that during the time of the 
Cultural Revolution, many of the 
historical monuments and 
buildings were destroyed by 
order of that government. 
Therefore, a lot of Qufu's history 
was destroyed and now they are 
in the process of rebuilding and 
refurbishing the monuments. I 
suppose that our guide felt an 
especially harsh resentment for 
the government of the Cultural 
Revolution, since he was a 
descendent of Conf ucious and the 
monuments that were destroyed 
were a part of his heritage. So 
although Communism strives for 
the "sameness of each man" and 
the limiting of individuality, 
there are differences of opinion 
throughout the country. 

My expectations of China were 
not exactly the same as what I 
encountered. Through the course 
of my reading and my talking 
with others who had already 
made the journey to China, I had 
formed my own opinion of what 
the country would be like. I 
imagined that the country would 
be primitive in comparison to 
ours but not to the extent that I 
saw on my trip. I knew to expect 
millions of people, but I suppose 
that the true realization of the 
mass of people that inhabit China 
is not made clear until they are 
experienced. Nowhere did I feel 
the mass population of people, 
than when we shopped in the 
Number 1 department store in 
Shanghai or as we tried to leave 
the Chinese Odpera in Hangzhou. 

The most valuable thing that I 
learned from my experiences in 
China was an appreciation for 
my own country. The old saying 
"You don't know what you've got 
till it's gone" held true for me 
while in China. The freedoms 
that we experience and take for 
granted everyday were missed 
greatly by myself and I know 
many others in our group. 
Especially around meal time. 
But most importantly, the 
freedoms of speech, religion, and 
individuality are freedoms that I 
take for granted daily. My trip to 
China helped me appreciate the 
blessings that I have daily in 
America. I will now think twice 
before complaining about the 
food in the cafeteria at Cen- 
tenary. Touring China was not a 
trip that could be called a 
vacation, but it was an ex- 
perience that I will always be 
grateful for.

Pr toZl : A Graduate Returns 

by Dr. Jeff Hendricks 
Thomas Wolfe the novelist (not 
the New Journalist With the 
Write Stuff Tom Wolfe) once 
asserted with the confident 
finality of a person with his 
tremendous ego: "You Can't Go 
Home Again." Wolfe even wrote 
a dictionary-size novel with that 
title to prove his point. I hope he 
was wrong. For after having 

graduated from Centenary in 
1975 1 now find myself back at the 
college— but on the other side of 
the desk. And amidst the 
dangling participles and un- 
conscious fragments that oc- 
casionally invade the basement 
of Jackson Hall, I have begun to 
think about what it means to 
come back to my spiritual home, 
to return to the site where I chart 

Dr. Hendricks studies for his films. 

my birth as a thinking person. 

Centenary was and 

exhilarating experience for me 
when I entered as a freshman in 
the fall of 1971. Coming from a 
small town in north Louisiana 
where to read, and think, and 
dream — especially for males — 
were private acts, I found Cen- 
tenary a haven, a virtual Utopia. 
My first couple of years at the 
college, 1971-73, was a time when 
many faculty and students 
believed that ideas mattered, 
that these ideas were valuable in 
themselves, that they had con- 
sequences. There was a sense 
then that if enough people 
believed in the same idea and got 
together and acted that 
something might happen. There 
was a sense that even one in- 
dividual act in the world could 
make a difference. Looking back 
on those days now I wince at our 
naivety about how easily change 
comes about socially and even 
personally. But this enthusiasm, 
this hope that the world could be 
changed, ultimately made life 
meaningful for us. 

Today, looking from the other 
side of the desk, I seek that in- 
tellectual enthusiasm and find it 
missing all too often. Certainly 
there is plenty of energy being 
expended on campus. But on 
what? As a teacher I'm not sure. 
And that is what puzzles me. 
Students do their classwork— 
most of the time. But seldom do I 
find that students love what 

I see any passion for the in- 
tellectual work at hand. Virtually 
never do I sense any true 
curiousity about a subject 

The New Journalist as Culture 
Hero Tom Wolfe called the 
generation of the Seventies the 
Cool generation. This epithet 
could still hold true for the 
present generation of students. I 
gather that no one wants to make 
any truly passionate com- 
mitments to much of anything. 
Passion and curiosity and 
commitment make one 
vulnerable. A person who is 
committed to an idea, or who is 
even enthusiastic about it, is 
always in danger of being 
disappointed, or rejected, or 
hurt. And it seems that few 
people want to take this risk. 
Students today are cautious on 
every level. But being overly 
cautious creates an intellectual 
hardening of the arteries- 
something one doesn't want to 
acquire at too early an age. 

What then is to be done? 
Perhaps it is time for the entire 
college— students, faculty, and 
staff— to look at itself and ask 
some very basic questions: What 
does it mean to be a liberal arts 
college in the 1980's? Are we just 
a smaller but more expensive 
version of a state university? Or 
do we offer a different per- 
spective, an alternative point of 
view to the primarily technical, 
pre-professional training of 

they're doing. Seldom, if ever, do larger schools? 

Love: Our Most Precious Possession 

by Scott C. Andrews 

Lile does not have to be boring. 
Dr. Jeff Ickes, a professor at 
LSU-S. tells us that there are 
things which are a part of the 
social-psychological phenomena 
that we should not do, however 
these things are the best. All the 
social "no-no's" are the most 
exciting things that can be in 
peoples lives. 

Statistics indicate that 80-90 
percent of people today are 
lonely. The average 20-year-old is 
lucky to have two friends who 

love him-her unconditionally. 
That is to say, two people, outside 
one's immediate family, who can 
be called upon in any situation 
who would give everything they 
had for the other and neither 
expect nor want anything in 
return. The average 40-year-old 
is lucky to have one person who 
loves them unconditionally. At 
this rate it's easy to see how an 
80-year-old could be alone on his- 
her death bed. 

The most precious thing any of 
us possess is Love. It's the 
greatest power any of us will ever 

have. Ickes says he has a goal 
and that is to meet a new person 
everyday. The purpose behind 
this goal is to meet, get to know, 
and develop a loving relationship 
with as many people as possible. 
His basic objective is to have 
more than things (fine china, 
coins, jewelry, etc.) at his side 
when his time comes to pass on. 
Ickes makes an important point 
in that people are tied up in 
collecting things. He sees that 
things are only so valuable, but 
people are invaluable. Part of 
what Ickes stresses is being 

happy with your own imperfect 
self. If that imperfect self tells 
you to go play on the slide in the 
park. Go! 

Children know how to live and 
are here to teach adults how. 
Children don't know the social 
"no-no's." His best example of a 
social "no-no" is talking or 
carrying on of any kind in an 
elevator. When most people enter 
an elevator they play a quiet 
game, conversations stop and 
everyone stands well composed 
watching the numbers click by. 
Ickes makes a fabulous point. 





If the liberal arts tradition 
means, to paraphrase Matthew 
Arnold, seeing life steadily and 
seeing it whole, to understand our 
place in the larger world around 
us, to learn to appreciate our 
relationship with nature, our 
place in history, our 
achievements in the arts, in 
short, those things that make us 
most human, then I feel that all of 
us at the college need to examine 
why so many of us feel so 
fragmented, so alienated. There 
seems to be too little common 
ground on which all of us can 
communicate, on which we can 
assume that our colleagus and 
fellow students have read and 
struggled to come to terms with. 
There is too little shared in- 
tellectual struggle here on 
campus, for like universities we, 
too, here at Centenary are all too 
often tied down in our own 

There are of course no easy 
answers. But at Centenary, 
because we are small, and 
because ultimately all of our 
doors are open, we can change 
things. And while the intellectual 
life is actually quite good here at 
the college, it certainly is not 
what it should be. On one level 
Wolfe was right. The Centenary 
of 1984 is not the Centenary of 
1971. Nor would I want it to be. 
But I am not quite sure what the 
Centenary of the Eighties is, or 
will be. On another level Wolfe 
was wrong. There are still a good 
many people on this campus who 
believe passionately in what 
Centenary stands for, who hope 
and dream and believe that 
Centenary can become not just a 
good but a great college. What we 
have to do is seek each other out 
and start working toward that 
goal— together. 

you are dealing with a captive 
audience. It's the perfect time to 
get to know two, three, four, even 
five brand new different people. 
All you have to do is stand by the 
buttons and if people are 
reluctant stop the elevator. The 
main point is to avoid the made 
up self we project and to be

congratulate all of our stupen- 
dous, astonishing, incredible, 
extraordinary, indescribable 
new initiates. We would like to 
thank Becki and Miriam for the 
live entertainment at meeting, 
and Wynne, Nancy, and Meg for 
the newest look in Greek par- 
tywear. Our basketball team is 
looking forward to working with 
Coach Dennis Boddie. We have 
lots of spirit and plan to win the t- 
shirt. Way to go Diana - Good 
luck in Memphis. Welcome back 
Cynthia - We missed you. (Chip 
may have too) . Good luck to the 
tennis team at the start of their 
season and to the varsity football 
team. Go to the Rose Bowl. 


Well, High School Weekend is 
upon us as we quietly await the 
calm before the storm! If you 
pass by the House, you will notice 
a vehicle by the back patio f illed 

with Reeb, and just waiting to be 
the center of attention. As 
tradition holds it, this is the 
wrong weekend to have a 
girlfriend due to all the sweet, 
young, innocent high school girls 
wandering about. My suggestion 
is to be patient girlfriends, 
because the weekend lasts only 
so long or does it? Rumor has it 
that the Reeb Bong may make its 
first appearance since rush week 
of 1982. If Bob doesn't use it, 
somebody else is sure to get 
destroyed! The KA's earned a net 
total of $600 for setting up and 
taking down the gymnastics 
equipment for the Lady Gym- 
nists home meets. We would like 
to thank Coach Edwards, Bill 
Roberts and the entire staff who 
are greatly appreciated for 
giving us this opportunity. We 
also congratulate the gymnastics 
team for their fine season and we 
wish them luck in nationals. The 
House is partially naked and will 
have hopefully been painted by 
the time the party gets cranking. 

Mike Talley gets our congrats for 
participating in the volleyball 
team's first place finish in 
Gladewater, Texas. Well the 
party will definitely be at the KA 
House this weekend so come at 
your own risk ! I would like to say 
one final and important word — 


Although we got off to a - well - 
late start with our Rattler 
Roundup this past weekend, the 
event was a complete success. 
Special thanks go out to Wade 
Loep for his efforts coordinating 
the conference. We would also 
like to thank President Webb and 
Dean Anders for participating 
with us this weekend. And a final 
thanks goes out to the sororities 
for helping us entertain our 
Brothers from other chapters. 

A big congratulations goes out 
to Daughter of the Crossed 
Swords, Diana Marble, on her 
initiation into Chi Omega. How 
was the owl blood. Di? 

Around Town 

by Tina Hackett 
Larry Morse 

This week, we decided that we 
should try something different. 
Besides, one can't eat out all the 
time! Last Friday, The Strand 
Theatre Corporation held an 
Open House at The Strand for the 
general public. Among several 
students and faculty of Cen- 
tenary and native Shreveporters, 
we were amazed at the partially 
completed renovations. 

The Strand was built in 1924 
and was the first of the Saenger- 
Ehrlich Theatres. Because of 
this, it differs from the other 
Saenger-Ehrlich Theaters. It was 
a grand blend of foreign styles. It 
had marble stairs, crystal 
chandeleere, and a gold fish pond 

in the lobby. It was very much 
the roaring twenties. The Strand 
Theatre Corporation took over 
the decayed building in 1977, and 
began renovations to bring it 
back to its original splender. The 
purpose of last Friday's Open 
House was to increase funds and 
interest in the final stage of the 

The corporation has issued an 
invitation to the public to con- 
tribute either their time or 
money or both to the final stage 
that will cost not only $1.3 million 
dollars, but also the help of 
people interested in seeing the 
Strand flourish once again. 
Membership in the corporation 
begins at "Individual" for $10.00, 
"Family" for $25.00, 

"Organization" for $30.00, 

"Contributing" for $50.00, and 
"Patron" for $100.00. Volunteer 
categories are "Special Events," 
"Office Help," "Ushering," 
"Tour Guide," "Publicity," and 

If you are interested in a 
volunteer position and-or 
becoming a member of the 
corporation, send your name, 
address, and telephone number 
along with your area of interest 
and-or check to: The Strand 
Theatre Corporation, P. O. Box 
20%, Shreveport, LA 71166. 

So, if you missed the exciting 
open house and the music of "The 
Mice," get "Around Town" to the 
corner of Crockett and Louisiana 
and take a look and imagine a 
little about the past... and realize 
it in the near future.

Once again, Theta Chi con- 
tinues to demonstrate its 
amazing athletic ability by 
soundly defeating the faculty in 
intramural basketball. 

Moving right along, we would 
like to welcome back Jeff

repledge. Speaking of pledges, 
those crazy guys are at it again 
with one of their money-making 
schemes, get this, a carwash. But 
seriously, try to come out and

Well, another memorable 
chapter of Teke history went 
down at the house Saturday nite, 

when every frater in the chapter 
got so incredibly gooned they lost 
all of their few remaining morals 
and decided to prance up and 
down the street wearing birthday 
suits. Biff led the parade, 
followed closely by H., Prytanis 
Timm, O.C., and even Marcus 
shed his clothes for a few in- 
nocent laughs. 

Teke basketball has started if 
not with a bang, at least a cheer. 
Franklin Lionel has chosen to 
play for another team, leaving 
Teke 1 with only Scott Yudin, 
Robert R., and Brother. 

Congratulations go out to all

The Gents basketball team has 
been on the road for their last 
three games following a split at 
home losing to Georgia Southern 
College 69-64 and defeating 
Mercer University 70-68. 

Their road trip began Thur- 
sday, February 9, in Sharp 
Gymnasium of the Houston 
Baptist University campus in 
Houston, Texas. The Gents were 
ahead by a five point lead at half- 
time. Jackson made nine con- 
secutive points at one time in the 
first half. The second half ended 
in a tie 62-all when Russell 
Sayeor scored and went into 
overtime. The Gents suffered a 
63-62 overtime loss when Cen- 
tenary missed all five of its shots 
from the field and one free throw. 

The loss against Houston 
Baptist left the Gents in a tight 
situation, against Hardin- 

Simmons, Saturday, February 
11, at the Mabel Complex on HSU 
campus. Centenary, 9-13 and 4-6

Student Handbook Questionable 

Centenary is on the upswing. In 
only a few years, we have 
changed from a financially un- 
stable institution whose doors 
were on the point of closing to a 
college, financially sound, whose 
doors are flung wide open to 
progress in the pursuit of higher 
education. The last year has seen 
the coming of a new Dean of 
Business who has dedicated his 
energies to excellence in that 
school; the dedication of the 
Hodges Rose Garden, a star in 
the crown of campus 
beautification; the successful 
visits of two college groups to 
newly-opened China— the Cen- 
tenary Choir sent to be "singing 
ambassadors," and an interim 
group sent to study; and the 
endowment of two more 
academic chairs. Students have 
been given the opportunity to 
study with a professor from 
Oxford and one from Denmark. 
The Speaker of the British House 
of Commons and a Soviet 
dissident have spoken to them. In 
the next year one may expect to 
see at least one more Centenary 
athlete join the ranks of the 
professionals and to hear a 

Chinese conductor, a foreign 
affairs expert and, once again, 
the Speaker of the House of 
Commons. Indeed, there is little 
doubt that Centenary has tran- 
sformed herself from a rickety 
sinking ship to a sleek craft 
skimming over progressive 
waters. The next area in which 
we may continue our self- 
improvement in striving for 
excellence is the student 
handbook, which details the 
rights, privileges, and 

obligations of those enrolled 
here. If we are to keep moving 
ahead, surely this document 
must move along with us. As it 
now stands, the student handbook 
contains several passages which 
are out-dated and some that have 
proved to be ineffective or unjust 
in light of the realities of running 
a college. It also lacks some 
passages to guarantee some very 
basic student rights. 

Several examples of such 
passages are evident on even the 
first reading of the handbook. 
Page two states, "Use of chewing 
tobacco in instructional and 
student activity areas is 
prohibited." Chewing tobacco is 
not only used but also sold in the 

SUB. If we do not wish to enforce 
this rule, why keep it? 

Under "Specific areas of 
conduct for which any student is 
subject to disciplinary action" on 
page three, one sees that a 
student can be disciplined for 
"any conduct which adversely 
affects the student's suitability 
as a member of the Centenary 
academic community." Surely 
the rest of the book is specific 
enough concerning the guidelines 
of student life that such a rule, 
one that is so open to in- 
terpretation and that could be so 
easily abused, is not necessary. 

The handbook also tells us that 
"dress and conduct should be in 
good taste at all times" (page 6) . 
Is it not the right of every 
American to dress and conduct 
himself as he chooses, as long as 
he does not infringe upon the 
rights of others in doing so? Can't 
a college do without a regulation 
whereby some unspecified of- 
ficial is charged with the duty of 
determining what constitutes 
"good taste" in student dress and 

According to the handbook, 
"all students 18 years of age and 
older may opt to have opposite 

CFA Policy Confusions 

By Alyce Boudreaux 

If one looked carefully at the 
cost demanded of meals at 
Centenary College he-she would 
notice and obvious discrepency. 
The discrepency lies in regard to 
the various meal ticket plans. It 
would seem that since students 
are allowed the full three meal a 
day plan, any other plans would 
be divided by three. In other 
Words, if the cost of a full meal 
ticket was $9.00, the 2-3 meal 
ticket would cost $6.00 and the 1-3 
meal ticket would cost $3.00. Such 
a practice would be well in ac- 
cord with logic. Unfortunately, 
this is not the case. 

A closer look and perhaps 

careful reasoning will bring to 
mind what students paid for meal 
tickets at the first of this year. If 
one opted for the full meal ticket 
plan, he-she paid exactly $665.00. 
It seems a high price (nearly 
$700.00) to pay for four short 
months of school but the 
discrepency occurs when one 
opts for the 2-3 meal ticket plan. 
That student is charged not 1-3 off 
of the $665.00 (which would come 
to approximately $442.00) but a 
mere $100.00 off causing that 
student to pay $565.00 Still if no 
one opts for the one-third meal 
ticket, he-she must pay not 
$221.00 (exactly one-third of 
$665.00) but half of a full meal 
ticket: $335.00! Where is the logic 

in arbitrarily deciding cost of 
meals? One might assume that 
the price cost is dependent 
upon which meals a student 
chooses to eat (i.e. breakfast- 
lunch or lunch-dinner). Again 
this is not the case as the cost for 
breakfast-lunch is the same as 
lunch-dinner. According to Joy 
Jeffers, it makes no difference in 
price which meals one chooses. 

It is our prerogative as 
students and as consumers to 
understand the costs we are 
paying. It is our responsibility to 
be informed as to where our 
money is going. There is no one to 
ask for us thus if we don't ask - 
who will? 

sex visitation in their dormitory 
... Residents under 18 years of 
age may have opposite-sex 
visitation with parental per- 
mission" (page 5). Although 
there are few students under 18 at 
Centenary, why should the few 
aged 17 and younger not be given 
the same visitation privileges as 
those who are older? And if in- 
creasing age is the criterion for 
increasing visitation privileges, 
shouldn't students aged 21 and 
older be allowed 24-hour 

The passage that is most in 
need of examination deals with 
the Judicial Referral Board. This 
committee, made up of the Dean 
of Students, the chairman of the 
Judicial Board, and the chair- 
man of the Student-Faculty 
Discipline Committee, is 
responsible for "the referral of 
cases of alleged student 
misconduct to the Residence Hall 
Councils, the Judicial Board or 
the Student-Faculty Discipline 
Committee" (page 8). In prac- 
tice, the Dean of Students ac- 
tually makes the decision as to 
which judicial body will hear a 
misconduct case; he then asks 
the other two members of the 

referral board to OK his decision. 
The Dean of Students also makes 
and presents the report of 
misconduct. This situation is 
similar to a prosecuting attorney 
being solely responsible for 
choosing the jury. 

The gravest omission from the 
student handbook is a passage 
describing a means whereby 
students have recourse when 
their rights are infringed upon by 
members of the faculty or ad- 
ministration. Just as there are 
sometimes students who are 
guilty of misconduct, there are, 
unfortunately, faculty and ad- 
ministration members who fail to 
follow established guidelines. A 
student should have an 
organized, established means of 
recourse. This recourse should be 
explained in the student hand- 

The aspects of the student 
handbook have been discussed 
are only suggestions as to which 
portions of this document should 
be reviewed and, possibly, 
modified. Every student should 
study the handbook and present 
his proposals to his SGA Senator.

It appeared on the lawn in front 
of Cline Hall in the morning hours 
of February 20, 1984. By later 
that day, maintenance men had 
plowed the land under so that no 
traces of evidence were left. 
Eyewitnesses reported that the 
land had letters inscribed first in 
some flammable material and 
then burned leaving a blackened 
inscription. The group respon- 
sible is claimed to be unknown by 
the administrators. The letters 
inscribed in the earth: Kappa 

Inside sources have disclosed 
that the Kappa Sigmas have 
volunteered to re-clod the earth, 
"even though they weren't 
responsible" for this mishap. 
Further sources have revealed 
that no charges have been filed 
against the Kappa Sigmas as the 
Dean of Students office has 
maintained (again this is 
reported from an inside source) 
that the Sigs were "framed." 

The irony of this situation is in 
regard to another group on 
campus commonly (though 

unofficially) referred to as the 
"Nads." It seems that just three 
weeks prior to this incident with 
the Sigs, the Nads were accused 
by the Dean of Students office of 
leaving tire tracks in the grass in 
front of the Marjorie Lyons 
Playhouse. Evidence of Plaster 
of Paris tire tracks supplied by the 
Nads proved their innoncence in 
a 5-hour trial by the Student 
Faculty Disciplinary Committee. 
No inference was made by the 
Dean of Students office that, 
perhaps the Nads had been 

If a case such as the one 
against the "Nads" is to be based 
on circumstantial evidence, 
shouldn't this include cases such 
as the incident in front of Cline? 
The "Nads" were found innocent 
and there is no reason to believe 
that any guilt could be proved in 
the Cline incident. The question 
then is whether all such cases 
should be tried or whether the 
practice of trying some cases on 
such a circumspect basis is

Words from Wonderland 

By Betsy Camp 

There is a story of a young man 
who lay dying in a hospital from 
an unknown cause. Even as he 
drew his last breath, he was 
smiling broadly. 

"What has happened to you, 
son?" queried a worried 

The young gasped for his final 
breath, smiled broader still, and 
answered, "Spring break." 

Friday at 1:50 p.m., spring 
break comes to Centenary. 
Students will race toward cars, 
buses, airplanes, pushcarts, and 
every other available means of 
transportation. Their 
destinations will be varied. Some 
will simply head for home, others 
will race to the beaches of 
Florida, and the really serious 
spring breakers will speed to 
New Orleans and Mardi Gras. 

Spring break became a 
tradition about 2300 years ago in 
Greece. Students at the Lyceum 
became notably restless at this 
time of year. Their teachers met 

and discussed this strange 
phenomenon. Aristotle himself is 
reported to have made the final 
decision to allow the students a 
week-long break from their 
studies. He told his fellow 
teachers that, "The natives are 
restless. Letting them join the 
revelries of Dionysus will aid 
them in concentrating more fully 
when they return." 

Some of the other teachers 
expressed alarm at Aristotle's 
decision. "And what .of the 
possibility that they will not 
return?" said one. 

"And where goeth they?" 
asked one teacher who was often 
chastized for being biblical 
before his time. 

Aristotle eyed each man, drew 
a deep breath, and answered, 
"They shall return. They will 
need rest after their merry- 
making. What better place to 
relax than a philosophy class? 

"In answer to your question, 
Peter-Simon, they taketh to the 
hilth and runneth wild. In future 
times, there will be a great place 

for all students to go for this time. 
There will be shining sands, and 
brimming goblets. Warm sun and 
warmer maidens. Fortunately 
for us, this place has not yet been 
discovered and we need not 
worry about the morals of our 

The other teachers were 
satisfied. All students were to be 
free for one week. After their 
bodies and money supplies were 
exhausted, they would return to 
class and their studious ways. 
Aristotle smiled and called for 
the next topic, "Should women be 
allowed to study?" The room 
filled with laughter. 

Quite a bit has changed since 
the time of Aristotle. Spring 
break is a tradition, Florida has 
been discovered, and women are 
teaching the future Aristotlettes 
of the world. The only thing that 
has not changed is the students 

Friday the tradition continues.

say that we are glad to finally 
appear in the Greek Beat. Happy 
Birthday to Stephanie Joyce, 
Laura Glaze, Kathy Rogers, and 
Lisa Darlington! High School

Thanks to all the fraternities for 
the great parties. 

Congratulations to Tina and the

improving so much. 

Congratulations to the gym- 
nasts for their victory in Mem- 
phis and good luck at nationals.

Murrell's and the downstairs

provided by Men Without Pants. 
But the most remarkable feat 

was that the men without feet — 
Kevin and Stacy — were dancin' 

Those cracy pledges gave 
away some cash at the Gents' 
game on Saturday. 

Congratulations go out to Paul 
McDowell and that tennis player 
from a foreign land. Needless to 
say, the carwash was scrapped 
due to the unexpected monsoon. 

We are eagerly looking for- 
ward to Spring Break and all that 
it will bring to one and alls. Untill 
the week after next, be good, and 
if you can't be good . . . 


Greetings, everyone. We hope 
that everyone enjoyed high 
school days this past weekend. 
The Chi Omega's certainly did 
and would like to thank the Theta 
Chi's, TKE's, KA's, and the Sigs 
for their incredible parties. They 
were enjoyed by all. We are now 
anticipating formal events. 
Congratulations to Diana and to 
all the gymnasts for their recent 
victory in Memphis and good 
luck at Nationals next week. 

Finally, we would like to wish 
everyone a fun and exciting 
spring break.

Well, another week, another 
Greek Beat. First, let me say that 
last week's Greek Beat was a 
total fabrication, meant for the 
amusement of our readers. In 
other words, y?u can't believe 
everything you read (even if it is 
in the Conglomerate). 

Good news abounds this week 
in Tekedom. A hearty 
congratulations goes out f c 
Frater David Sewell who was 
initiated this past week. More 
will soon be following in his 
footsteps. Congratulations (or 
condolences?) also go to Frater 
David Watkins who announced 
his marriage plans last week. 
(Who gets to keep the hamsters, 
Dave? ) . Finally, we are proud to 
announce that the President's 
Cup is returning to its rightful 
home after a brief hiatus. 

The smoke is clearing, the dust 
is settled, High School Weekend 
is over for another year. The 
bash Saturday nite proved to the 
world Teke supremacy at the art 
of rioting. 

Several partiers slept in the 
coffin, atop the outdoor shed, 
while still others did not make it 
home at all. Timm set the world 
speed record in tape changing, 
while J.B.&Co. set a new record 
in drink-chasing. We're all 
looking forward to ZTA Formal 
next month. 

C.J. and sidekick have been 
asking themselves all weekend 
long "My God, what have I 
done? ! " Catch a wave and you're 
sittin' on top of the world . . . 

The annual O.C. & Stiggs Blue 
Hawaii Party at the Closet is in 
March . . . limited tickets 
available, so contact your 
nearest B.R.U. member.

If you are a fan of old movies, 
"Casablanca" in particular, you 
will also soon become a fan of 
Sam's "Play It Again" Cafe and 
Bar. Sam's is located at 3200 
Youree Drive. 

The atmosphere is one of 
yesterday. Tropical plants, brass 
fans, wood floors, and cafe 
furniture give a unique feeling to 
all who enter. In the background, 
a player piano can be heard 
playing tunes from the 1930's and 
1940's. If you're not careful, you 
might just think "Bogie" will 

walk in and join Ingrid Bergman 
at the table in the corner. 

On the menu, one will find 
gourmet hanburgers, wine 
burgers, taco salads, shrimp 
salad, and steaks, as well as 
many other exciting entrees to 
suit any task.

Indoor Soccer Classic 

On March 10 and 11, in 
cooperation with Centenary 
College of Louisiana, the Cen- 
tenary Gentlemen Soccer Team 
host the First Annual Centenary 
Gold Dome Indoor Soccer 

The tournament will be 
comprised of both youth and 
college teams from the 
surrounding areas. On the first 
day, competition will begin at 
9:00 with the 14-under teams and 
19-under teams alternating 36 
minute games throughout the 
day. Each team will play at least 
4 game. On the final day, 
beginning at 9:00, the six college 
teams will play a tournament in 
which Assistant Coach Bill 
Hempen of Centenary feels the 
Gents have a good chance of 

Indoor soccer is a very fast and 
exciting game, it is played with 

only 5 men and a keeper whereas 
outdoor has 11 players. It uses 
smaller goals and has the added 
dimension of using the walls as 
an extra player of sorts. Hempen 
feels that since the game is cut in 
half (only 5 players) Centenary 
"will be much more competitive 
with the number of players on the 

Another unique attraction of 
this tournament is that every 
game will be videotaped and 
replayed immediately after the 

This tournament is being run 
by the Centenary Soccer Team 
and supporting volunteers to 
generate interest in Soccer in 
Shreveport, and to raise money 
for travelling expense for the 1984 
Soccer season. Admission is $1.00 
for adults and .50 for children.

Yes, Centneary 
does have a 
volleyball team! 

Though many people don't 
know it, Centenary has a varsity 
volleyball team of its own. This 
team participated in in East 
Texas Open in Gilmer, Texas 
over the weekend of February 
11th. Though they did not com- 
pete against other college teams, 
they did play against men's 
league teams. 

The tournament started on 
Thursday, but the Gents did not 
start play until Friday night. In 
the first match, the team, which 
had only the required six players, 
dominated 15-6, 15-10. 

Saturday morning, the Gents 
played another well controlled 
match winning 15-4, 15-6. After a 
5 hour layoff, the Gents played by 
far the best team. The Gents rose 
to the occasion winning by a 
score of 15-7, 15-13. As it turned 
out, these same two teams met 
again in the championship 
match. The Gents won the first 
game 15-13 after coming back 
from a 7-0 deficit. The second 
game proved to be the only loss 
by the Gents 8-15. The third game

was bitterly contested with both 
teams playing extremely well. In 
the end, the Gents' determination 
won out by a score of 15-9. 
The entire tournament was 

played with great intensity, and 
was a great way to start the 1984 
season. Look for announcements 
concerning official tryouts and 
come on out! ! !

Ladies Win First NAIA Championship 

Centenary College head

"I wanted this championship 
more than any other I have won," 
Edwards said after winning the

pleasure. I have had some great 
teams with better talent, but 
none as pleasurable as this

SGA Deliberates Over Constitution 

Since November 29, 1983, the 
SGA has been trying to deal with 
a dilemma. This dilemma 
regards the Separation of 
Powers, Article IV, section A, in 
the SGA Constitution (p. 17 of the 
Student Handbook). This Article 
states that no student may serve 
on more than one of the following 

a. SGA 

b. Judicial Board 

c. Student-Faculty Discipline 

d. Honor Court 

e. Dorm Council 

It was discovered in November 
that three members of the SGA 
were also on Dorm Council. 
Those members have recently 
resigned from Dorm Council, and 
retain their positions on the SGA. 

However, on Nov. 29, a motion 
was made by one of the three 
requesting special permission to 
remain on both groups. When 
permission was not granted, he 
asked that SGA be stricken from 
the above list, thus enabling an 
SGA member to also be a 
member of any of the other four 
groups. This request was 
granted, through majority SGA 

In order for the change to 
become official, however, an 
election by student vote must be 
held. No date has been set, but 
the election will be soon after 
spring break. 

The dilemma in this situation is 
that some SGA members and 
students are upset about the 
proposed change. They feel that 

this would give the SGA too much 
control over many major 
decisions in the college. Those 
voting for the change feel that the 
SGA and respective senators 
would simply be enabled to 
represent their classes more 

The question students must ask 
themselves is whether or not 
such a change in the Constitution 
would be a good idea or a bad 
idea. Would it give an SGA 
member too much voice in those 
things he or she feels strongly 
about, or would the SGA member 
in actuality be representing the 
strong feelings of the student 
body? This is not a question to be 
taken lightly. A decision will be 
made when the student body 
votes on March 22. 

SGA Needs You! 

Recently the secretarial 
position of the SGA has been 
vacated. If you are interested in 
becoming involved in Student 
Government and enjoy taking 
minutes and handling other 
secretarial duties, then this 
position is for you. Contact Dawn 

Sikes, SGA Elections Chair- 
person, immediately to acquire a 
petition. Petitions are due 
Monday, March 19, and at that 
time campaigning begins. The 
election will be Thursday, March 
22. Also, we will be voting on 

several proposed charges- 
amendments to the SGA con- 
stitution as proposed by the SGA. 
MARCH 22, during lunch and 
dinner, outside the Caf. Thanks!

Senate Minutes 

by Scott C. Andrews 

(This summarizes the Senate 
Meeting of March 13 and in no 
way reflects the official minutes 
of the Student Senate.) 

The Tuesday, March 13 
meeting of the Student Govern- 
ment Association was called to 
order by President Thorndotte 
Baughman. The minutes were 
approved, and officer reports 
were received. Treasurer Diane 
Fowler reported that the cost of 
the Spring calender was $148.48. 
Kathy Heard was congratulated 
for her work on the calenders. 

The next to be heard from was 
the Elections Committee who 
informed the SGA that elections 
to fill the vacancy of SGA 
Secretary would be held a week 
from Thursday, March 22. Five 

persons have presently received 
petitions to run. They are Mary 
Jo Monzingo, Debbie Patterson, 
Gretchen Vahlkamp, Clay 
Robertson, and Jim Ogden. 
Under Forums, the SGA was 
reminded that Conductor Ma 
from the People's Republic of 
China would be arriving Wed- 
nesday for a stay of about four or 
five days. Earlier this semester, 
the SGA voted to give Conductor 
Ma $500 to assist in his stay. 

After normal committee 
reports were heard, the Ad Hoc 
committee on Amendments to 
the present Student Handbook 
presented its proposals. Most all 
of the changes were merely 
revisions to an out of date Student 
Handbook. There were a few 
changes which deserve noting at 


Dear Editor, 

The other night, I was rudely 
waked up by an R. A. whose name 
I must withhold for fear of mv 
life. She (I could be lying abouv 
gender) burst into my room, 
grabbed my microwave, slapped 
a bottle of Wild Turkey out of my 
nand and kicked Joe, Bill, and 
Fred out of my room. 

What did I do to deserve this 
treatment? Am I a hoodlum? Do 
I smoke pot first thing in the 
morning? No! The only charge I 
have ever been pressed with is 
solicitation. And I wait until at

this time. The first deals with the 
right of the college to inspect 
dormitory rooms. Under the new 
proposal, rooms may only be 
inspected when student is 
present, when emergency 
situations (Health, Maintenance, 
Fire) occur, or when city, state, 
or federal law dictates. The 
second change deals with the 
omission of the Dean of Students 
from the Judicial Referral 
Board, and the inclusion of the 
respective Dorm Council 
Presidents. This, it has been said, 
will not allow the Prosecutor to 
choose which court the case 
comes to trial in. The last im- 

portant change is under the Role 
of the President of the College (p. 
8). It was submitted that the 
following paragraph be omitted. 
Nothing herein contained shall 
be regarded as detracting from 
the traditional plenary powers of 
the President of the College and, 
notwithstanding anything to the 
contrary herein contained, the 
President of the College may on 
his own initiative and at his own 
discretion immediately and 
without any procedural 
requirements whatsoever 
suspend or expel the student, or 
otherwise suspend or terminate 
his right to be present on the 

campus, or to attend classes. 
Such action is subject to review 
by the Student-Faculty Discipline 
Committee, but the status of the 
student, pending final action, 
shall remain that in which he has 
been placed by the President . 

The comment was made by 
Committee Chairperson Diane 
Fowler that this clause has been 
present since the original Cen- 
tenary charter. 

These proposals passed the 
SGA and shall be presented to the 
Student Life Committee for 
approval and-or discussion. 

The meeting was adjourned at 

least noon before lighting up. 

Why then, is the Judicial Board 
so concerned about my doings? 
Must I stand trial before that 
mob of buffoons for minor in- 
fractions of outdated rules? 

I want to inform the entire 
campus (students, faculty and 
administration) that I will not 
stand for this treatment! I am 
bringing my lawyer boyfriend to 
this triple tribunal enacting a 
parody of justice you choose to 
call a hearing.

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

Each semester has within it a 
series of cycles. During the fall 
semester, we have parties, mid- 
terms, parties, and finals. In the 
spring, the parties take on a more 
formal nature. You guessed it. 
The cycle we are about to enter 
now is...formals. 

You don't have to be greek to 
attend a formal. All formals are 
the same, anyway. I don't care 
who has it or where; the at- 
mosphere is the same from your 
first prom to your last Petroleum 
Club Christmas Ball. 

The basic ingredients and the 
problems associated with them 
are the same, as well: people, 
fancy clothes, music, and spirits. 

People, or to be more specific, 
dates are the first problem to be 
encountered. You have to have a 
date Who wants to go stag to a 
formal? And who wants to go 
with a stag? 

We agree the, that a date is 

necessary. If you absolutely 
cannot find one (short of going to 
Notre Dame cathedral), I have 
some advice for you: take a 
sibling or cousin and create a 
false identity for him or her. I 
have to admit that I've never 
tried this one myself. My cousins 
are all at least seven years 
younger than myself, and 
female, and my brothers won't 
even admit to knowing me. 

Once you capture a date, hold 
on to it. Then, when you arrive at 
the extravaganza, notice that 
Joe's date has the same nose and 
eyes as he does. Keep your 
thoughts to yourself and stay in 
the shadows. Someone may 
notice that your date is your twin 

Clothes for formal are a kind of 
drag. If you are male, suits and 
tux are the border of the day. But 
females must struggle to find and 
fit into the perfect gown. And, of 
course, there is always the 
possibility that someone with 

good taste to match your own will 
wear a dress which matches your 
own. In this case, be brave. Hold 
your chin up high, smile win- 
ningly, and sneak off at the 
earliest possible moment. 

Music is rarely a problem 
unless someone's grandmother 
picks the band. Or if the 
organization sponsoring the 
affair is somewhat short of funds. 
In that case, be prepared for the 
Millard J. Filmore Jr. High 
School band. 

Spirits are no problem. Unless 
you drink them. Then it is 
necessary to beware of fruit 
punch. That is the most 
dangerous beverage ever 
created. There is always some 
jerk who thinks it has not been 
spiked enough and elects himself 
Chief Spiker. He will usually 
empty enough 190 proof grain 
alcohol into it to stun a herd of 

Enjoy this formal season. 
Dress well and date safely.

Professor's Podium: I Remember Lafe 

by Dr. L. H. Cox 

Some undergraduate ex- 
periences are transmuted into 
golden memories for aging alums 
because the experiences are 
pleasant or funny or because they 
reflect favorably on the alum. 
Other experiences are thus 
transformed because they are 
recollections of faculty or fellow 
students who embody some 
virture admired by the alum. 
But my fond memory of Lafe 
Mims, a fraternity brother, does 
not easily fit any of these 
categories, for he was a con- 
summate goof-off. 

Lafe counted golden all 
moments spent at cards and any 
moments given to academic 
pursuit as time unwisely spent. 
He considered too much 
familiarity with text books, 
lectures, lab reports and the like 
as behavior that was unseemly, 
unbecoming, and to be avoided at 
all costs. Lafe did not dislike his 
professors. Just the opposite; he 
enjoyed their company, whether 
at cards or over a sociable drink. 
He simply assumed that course 
work was as embarassing to 
them as to him, something that 
good friends did not mention in 
polite company. Lafe did not look 
upon graduation requirements as 
a burden impoised by killjoys; 
rather he regarded them as 
inevitable but unfortunate in- 
trusions on an otherwise en- 
joyable four years in his life. Lafe 
was quietly confident that he 
would negotiate all hurdles to 

graduation; he would clear them 
not by dilligence but by a grace 
under pressure that refused even 
to acknowledge academic 
pressure at all. If he did not 
carp or niggle about the demands 
of academic life, Lafe reasoned, 
they would not, after four years 
of pleasant truce, judge him 

My College differed from most 
other colleges; in addition to the 
usual graduation requirements 
were senior Comprehensive 
Exams — twelve hours of written 
exams and then three hours of 
oral exam in the senior's major 
and minor fields. "Comps" oc- 
curred in the spring semester of 
the senior year. (Having passed 
my own Comps, I am glad I had 
them if for no other reason than 
that I can stagger any of my 
students who complain about the 
unfair academic rigors of Cen- 
tenary). Lafe, too, faced Comps. 
After two days and twelve hours 
of written exams, the conviction 
grew in Lafe's heart that he had 
not passed them. Hence, he 
would become an alum and not 
just an "ex" of the College only if 
he passed his orals. Further 
reflection convinced Lafe that 
most likely he could not pass his 
oral exam on merit; he would 
pass, if at all, only by an act of 

So Lafe decided to appeal to the 
humor, humanity, and allround 
bonhomie of the professor testing 
him. After all they were his 

friends as well as fellow sufferers 
in the human condition, of which 
Comprehensive examinations 
are a prime manifestation for 
testers and testees alike. Now 
Lafe was not your typical 
fraternity party boy; he was also 
a man of the world who looked 
spendid in evening clothes. As 
much as a midwestern lad can 
be, he was debonaire. Lafe went 
to his oral exam dressed in a 
tuxedo Unfortunately, Lafe 
failed all his Comps and could not 
graduate until next spring, 
provided he passed Comps the 
second time around. 

Lafe was extremely well liked 
in the fraternity, by other goof- 
offs and academic grinds alike- 
including myself among the 
latter. We all expressed great 
sorrow over his misfortune and 
embarassment. We all knew that 
if the Comps were honest, then at 
least one senior a year would not 
pass them. But we always 
regretted it when a friend failed 
regardless of how deserved that 
failure was. But the whole point 
of the story is that Lafe was 
embarassed not by his failure but 
by our sympathy. In fraternfity 
meeting he announced quite 
succinctly: "I deserved to fail 
and I don't want anybody feeling 
sorry for me." And for that one 
act of moral honesty and 
courage, I have always 
remembered Lafe Mims fondly— 
not because he was a goof-off, but 

Dr. L. H. Cox (photo by Jim Ogden) 

because he blamed no one else 
but himself for his failure. Since 
then I have met many more 
undergraduate goof-offs; in 
contrast to Lafe, most if not all of 
them have blamed their failures 
on other people, this contrast has 
added luster to my recollection of 

Lafe's moral example is 
particularly relevant today. 
After World War II, my college 
generation sold out for 
"plastics"; we worked hard for 
good grades only to get in on the 
material goodies of the post war 
economic boom. The more 

radical college generations of the 
late sixties and early seventies 
discovered that there was more 
to life than just making good 
grades. The present college 
generation is like mine in that 
they know the importance of good 
grades. But unlike my college 
generation, many of the present 
generation— particularly the 
goof-offs— look on grades as an 
inalienable right and not 
something to be earned. The real 
world out there isn't like that; 
there is no free lunch. But I won't 
preach. I'll simply say, "I 
remember Lafe ..."

"Welcome to Centenary 
College of Louisiana, oldest 
college west of the Mississippi, 
founded 1825, owned by the 
United Methodist Church..." 
After a while all those brochures 
handed out look the same: Here 
are people wearing jerseys with 
odd combinations of Greek 
Letters, attractive students who 
look like walking advertisements 
for Clearasil , immaculate 
grounds, beautiful buildings, and 
so forth and so on until one 
realizes that these archetypal 
figures are representative 
everything from University ot 

A View From The Top Atmosphere 

Borneo to Podunk State College. 
In my fourth year, I'm finally 
beginning to recognize some 
familiar faces on our own 
brochures at Centenary (and 
they'll remain there for the next 
few years, or at least until the 
clothing is so out of style and the 
hair so different that such a 
change must be initiated. It's a 
matter of economics). 

What these various pamphlets 
don't tell the prospective student 
is of the atmospjjere of a certain 
college. The buildings, for 
example, are a major contributor 
to this overall effect. Except for 

that golden UFO across King's 
Highway from the Smith 
Building, our architecture is 
mostly Georgian style, red brick, 
with the stately columns and 
rectangular windows and dor- 
mers that mark the style But 
these inaminate objects eon 
tribute nothing more than mere 
props around which the action 
occurs. For the surrounding 
community, the campus, and all 
the activities amount to nothing 
unless one includes the human

These establishments make a 
major contribution to campus 
life. It's Strawn's for that fresh 
piece of strawberry pie, George's

before exams, and down to 
Murrell's near Youree on Sunday 
night, or a pitcher of beer and a 
slice of pizza on an excursion to 
Pizza King with a faculty 
member and half-a-dozen other 
students after a skull session in 
Mickle Hall. To me, that's it- 
mosphere! Or to grab a cup of 
coffee in the SUB while we debate 
the Great Issue Of Our Time, 
such as who'll take intramural 
basketball championship this 
year. That's atmosphere! And 
loading up our group (would you 
believe nine people in a Chevy

a nearby theater! and the Red 
River Revel and State Fair add to 
this. Yes, that's atmosphere! For 
it is the close interpersonal 
relationships that make the 
college expereience what it is, 
and the Centenary experience 
one in particular. At no other 
college have I found the overall 
atmosphere to be as enjoyable. It 
isn't Utopia, but neither is 
anyplace else. For NLU may 
have its Bayou Desiard, NSU its

I do it, and I know a lot of you 
do it too. You know, pinecone 

I've been watching people as 
they go to and from classes in 
Jackson Hall. They see a big, fat 
pinecone lying smack-dab in the 
middle of the sidewalk just ahead 
of them, they eye it with casual 
indifference, to throw it off 
guard. Then, they stroll up to it, 
and with a lightning quick kick, 
send the hapless pinecone hur- 
dling through the air, only to land 
in a broken, brittle heap, 10 feet, 9 
inches away. Woe, and again I 
say Woe to the pinecone that 
lands again on the sidewalk. It is 
once more subject to the whims 
of any one of the many brutal 
pinecone kicking students who 
happen by. 

There are two main types of 
pines and pinecones on our 
campus. The Loblolly pine, alias 
Pinus taeda, and the Slash pine, 
alias Pinus elliotii. The largest 
concentration of pinecones are 
found at two campus locations. 
One is between Sexton Dormitory 
and the Cafeteria, the other is the 
area surrounding the sidewalks 
leading to Jackson Hall from 
James Dormitory or from the 

Many students and even a few 
faculty members, (not named), 
have participated, perhaps 
unconsciously, in the habit for- 
ming practice of sending 
pinecones scurrying on land or 
through the air to land 10 feet, 9 
inches away. To some people, it 
gives a smug sort of man-over- 
nature satisfaction. Others 

consider it to be a sick practice. 
Still others don't care. 

John Talk, a Centenary student 
for two years, is a regular 
pinecone persecuter. "The way I 
see it, when I'm walking down 
the sidewalk to class and a 
pinecone is in my way, it's either 
him, or me." Another student 
who prefers to remain 
anonymous said, "I usually just 
step on them and let them lie 
there." An opposing view was 
presented by soccer player Matt 
Cardillo: "How would you like it 
if people kicked you and stepped 
on you?" and then there is the 
final side in this, stated by John 
Conners, "I don't notice things 
like that, I usually walk to class 
in a daze, especially after 25 cent 
draft night."

Another activity on campus 
that involves abusing pinecones 
is "Tolf," golf with tennis balls. 
When played at night, especially 
at 1:30 in the morning, tennis 
balls tend to dissappear into the 
blurry, I mean dense shadows of 
the night. Many are the times I 
have resorted to "Polf," golf 
avec a pinecone. Experienced 
Polf players classify the cones 
into two categories: first, the 
hard, heavy cones, which are 
able to achieve length flight, but 
tned to bend your club into a 
horseshoe shape; second, the big, 
semi-heavy cones with the 
prickly things sticking out. They 
don't travel as far as the harder 
ones, only 10 feet, 9 inches, but 

they do make a very satisfying 
smack when hit, especially at 
1:30 in the morning. 

If a serious bout of Polf games 
occurs in a time period of let's 
say a week, Passerbys will notice 
large quantities of crushed 
pinecones with no prickly things. 
Some people nervously brush this 
off by attributing it to the nation 
of squirrels on campus, but deep 
inside themselves, in the very 
essence of their being, they know 
that from 5 to 9 hours ago, hordes 
of seemingly innocent students 
had stood in the same spot and 
whipped themselves in to a 
frenzy, fratically clubbing, 
chipping, and driving 
pinecones, in all directions. 

Edgar Cayce Biblical 
Program Set 

"Handbook To The Highest," 
an approach to the Bible from the 
psychie's Edgar Cayce readings, 
will be presented Saturday, 
March 24, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 
the Regency Motor Hotel in 

Speaker for the workshop will 
be Robert William Krajenke of 
Virginia Beach, Va., author of 
Edgar Cayce's Story of the Old 
Testament, a three volume study 
which represents the most ex- 
tensive and complete collection 
of Edgar Cayce's interpretations 
of the Bible ever published. 

The seminar will focus on 
particular groupings of Old and 
New Testament verse and 
chapters frequently recom- 
mended by Cayce, and their 
application in an individual's 

daily life in bringing about 
spiritual guidance, inner growth, 
change and peace. 

Registration will be from 8:30-9 
a.m. Cost of the seminar will be 
$15 per person, or $25 for two 
from the same family. Pre- 
registrations received no later 
than March 14 will be provided 
with a luncheon buffet at the 
Regency at no extra cost. 
Registration at-door and after 
March 14 must provide their own 
lunch. Checks should be made

She s So Schizophrenic 

by Bill Thames 

Some record albums are like 
well-written novels. These 
albums have strands of con- 
tinuity which bind their in- 
dividual songs into unified works. 
At the other extreme, some 
albums are dismembered 
collections of songs, "Grabbags" 
of different sounds and styles. 
Cyndi Lauper's debut solo album, 

She's So Unusual, falls 
somewhere between these two 

Cyndi Lauper has been around 
the music business for years. 
During her career she has gone 
through a number of musical 
directions, from Pop to 
Rickabilly. One would think that 
she would have found her nicne 
by now. Yet, a listen to She's So

Unusual reveals a performer 
confident of her ability but un- 
sure of how to channel her talent. 
She sidesteps this problem by 
throwing in a little bit of 
everything. The result is an 
uneven album that promises 
much more than it can deliver. 

Side one opens with the 
album's best song, "Money 
Changes Everything." Cyndi 
takes the song, a cynical tale of 
money over love, and turns it into 
an emotional tour de force. From 
there the album segues into 
school girl giddiness ("Girls Just 
Want to Have Fun"), a lament of 
lost love ("When You Were 

HAVgY0UH£*&9 A80UTTUC new 
mw£ Aftoifcf * Gurry w**o 

w*Nrs to B£ * Mti<tsiMvL 

Mine"), and a lover's promise 
(Time After Time) ends side one. 
These four songs create a strong 
sequence in spite of the abrupt 
shifts in mood. If the rest of the 
album was as strong as side one, 
it would be a great album indeed. 
Unfortunately, the remainder 
of the album does not even come 
close to matching side one. Side 
two dabbles in a confusing array 
of styles. Cyndi tries everything 
from SKA-REGGAE to a 
twenties musical number but 
with little success. Only in "All 
Through the Night," the sole 
bright spot on side two, does she 
sing with any conviction. The rest 
of the second side sounds con- 
— IT 

trived, expecially in comparison 
with the strong first side. Cyndi 
should have cut the filler 
material and released side one 
plus "All Through the Night" as a 

Still, it is not a bad album, just 
a mediocre one. Were it not for 
side two, it would be 4 great 
albums. But it, play side one and 
then flip over to "All Through the 
Night." Hopefully, Cyndi's 
second album will give us two 
sides of great music. Until then, 
keep your fingers crossed and 
play "Money Changes 
Everything" until the grooves 
wear out. 




I hope everyone survived 
Mardi Gras or the sunny beaches 
of Florida and are ready to hit the 
books and classes again. The 
main activity that everyone 
needs to put on their calandar 
will take place on November 3 at 
7 p.m. in Brown Chapel, that is 
the date that Miss Kathy Heard 
(alias Student Activities 
Director) becomes Mrs. Donald 
James Barnes (alias TKE and 
R.A. ). A word of warning to all 
unsuspecting singles... you never 
know when the marriage bug is 
going to get you, but it's a great 
feeling when it does. 

Now to activities closer at 
hand. March 17 is not only St. 
Pats Day, but the night for ZTA 
formal. I wonder how many girls 
will be wearing green to keep 

away the pinches from their 
dates. Could be a rough night. 
March 30 the Chi O's will have 
their party with a post party 
March 31. How's that for a 
switch. Also on March 31 is 
Centenary night at Hamel's 
Park. Be prepared for a true fais 

I still need volunteers for the 
Health Fair, April 2. Any spare 
time you have would greatly be 
appreciated. There is a sign-up 

sheet outside the Coffeehouse or 
you can stop by my office. 

That's all for this week. A 
reminder for Seniors ... if you 
have not been fitted for your 
robe, please come by and see me. 
Until next week ... it's great to 
have you back from the holidays 
and be careful when sitting on 
places that are high in the air and 
tend to slope a bit.

everywhere in between, over 
spring break. The stories are 
partially gathered as we all wait 
for Nolan and Mike to get back 
from the beaches or jails of the 
Texas coast! Tone the Bone and 
his gal cruised over in Fritz to 
bask in the Florida sun, while 
another tribe of KA's invaded the 
Mardis Gras scene. Warde got 
free room and board while down 
in New Orleans, but he didn't like 
his roommates or the bars on the 
windows! He also said the cover 
charge was a bit out of his range 
so a few brothers chipped in to 
help him out - and I mean help 
him out! ! Jay needs to learn how 
to control his bladder by some 

other way than merely talking to 
it, because his lack of discipline 
showed one night while cruising 
the streets of Big "D." I and all 
the brothers hope your' pants 
were not ruined! All the Pledges 
are seeing their optometrists on a 
regular basis as they all await 
the big "eye"! The Zeta's had 
better be ready to party Saturday 
night because I know the KA's 
wiii be well tuned and ready to 
boogie man! As usual we will 
hold our own pre-party before the 
party in order, to be more 
relaxed around our dates! The 
KA's would like to congratulate 
the Lady Gymnasts for being the 
best in the country ! Coach Ed- 
wards and his staff are tops also! 

Old South is but a few months 
away and planning is well under 
way for the biggest blowout in 
Goodyear history! 

The KA's are getting into the 
poker craze but everytime we 
play somebody always loses! 
Isn't that confusing? We hope 
everyone had a good break and if 
you didn't better luck next year! 
Until next week this is your 
roaming KA Reporter with the 
news for the blues, so keep on 
your shoes and you can't loose.

all-around (35.20), sixth on vault 
(17.75) and floor (17.60), and 
runner-up on the uneven bars 
(17.80), five hundredths of a point 
shy of Greer (17.85). Janet 
Stevens, a junior from Bossier 
City, La., also earned All- 
America n honors. 

Stevens placed sixth on the 
floor along with Reasor (17.60). 
picking up her second All- 
Arrierican award. She was an All- 
American her freshman year in 
the all-around. Senior specialist 
Jessica Soileau earned her first 
Ail-American award with a 
fourth place finish on bars 
(17.60). The top six places, in- 
cluding ties, in each event earned 
All-American awards. 

In addition, coach Edwards 
was named to his first NAIA 
Coach of the Year award. He has 
won national titles in the NCAA, 
defunct AIAW Division-II, and 
now the NAIA. In all, Edwards 

has won six national gymnastics 
championships and finished 
second four times. 

In the two day event, the only 
letdown came when Evans 
missed out on winning the all- 
around title after missing her 
mount on bars for the first time in 
her four-year career. She missed 
the lower bar on her straddle to 
the high bar. 

However, it was her character 
and experience that carried the 
team to victory. She knew the all- 
around title was all but gone, but 
instead turned her emphasis 
towards the team, leading them 
on beam and floor. She did set a 
career mark on the floor with an 
9.40 and tied a career-high on 
floor with a 9.45. Stevens also set 
a career-mark on vault with a 
score of 8.75. Her previous high 
was an 8.70. 

Jessica Soileau, a senior from 
Ville Platte, La., earned All- 
American honors for the first 
time in her career, scoring a two- 
day total of 17.60 on the uneven 

bars for fourth place. Soileau 
underwent knee surgery her 
sophomore season in what ap- 
peared to be a career ending 
injury. Even though Soileau was 
unable to perform on vault and 
floor, she worked hard and came 
back on bars and limited beam 
work to finish her career. 

Susan Gibson, a junior from 
Richmond, Ind., put together a 
good meet scoring a 34.00 in the 
all-around, just missing All- 
American honors by five hun- 
dredths of a point. She scored a

# What's Wrong 

# With This Word? 

What's wrong with this word 
indeed? Nothing: it's a graphic 
design, (the artist apologizes for 
any faults you may find in her 
art, but you may blame that on 
human error.) 

What's wrong, then, in word? 
for most of us, nothing. We 
participate in various ex- 
tracurricular activities, social 
functions — and other forms of 
work and play. In fact, we might 
say that it's impossible to live a 

life without any participation in 

If it's true that there's nothing 
wrong with participation, then 
why are we so quick to avoid it? 
Is it the responsibility involved? 
Are we shy? Or just lazy? 

Mark Twain once said, 
"Everybody complains about the 
weather, but nobody does 
anything about it." Why is this 
true? The point of the matter is 
we have the right to do 

something, but we seldom ex- 
cerise it. For whatever reason 
this is true, it is a tremendous 
waste of talent. Case in point: we 
of the Conglomerate staff have 
received a great many com- 
pliments from the administration 
this year. With all due respect to 
the powers that be, they aren't 
our targeted audience. YOU are, 
the student. So how about some 

It isn't easy to print a 
newspaper; face it, we're busting 

our buns to get one out each 
week. People read it in caf, and 
argue about it in the SUB, but 
somehow it never really gets 
back to us: the opinions, the 
requests, or any of the ideas of 
any member of the student body. 
Even a small letter scrawled in 
crayon on a cafeteria napkin, 
"We luv the Cunglomewate, but 
we'd like to see more comix," 
would be appreciated. 
(Typewritten letters are better, 

Everybody likes applause. And 
even the dumbest actor learns 
from tomatoes. If you don't like 
the paper, write and tell us we'll 
give you column space. If you 
like it, you may want to work for 
us; You we'll pay. 

In the beginning, God said a lot 
of real heavy things. You can too. 
Respond so we'll know you're not 
asleep or dead. Save us our 
dignity and don't make us grovel.

trustee Harvey Broyles is one of 
the sponsors of this special 
concert featuring the music of 
Russian composers conducted by 
Paul Strauss, principal guest 

A Russian by birth, Mark 
Zeltser will be performing piano 
Concerto No. 3 in C Major for 
Piano and Orchestra by famed 
composer Sergei Prokofieff. 
Zeltser began piano studies at the 
age of six and gave his first 
public recital at eight years of 
age. In 1962, the renowned pianist 
and pedgogue, Jacob Flier, 
visiting Kishinev (a southwestern 
republic of the Soviet Union) on a 
concert tour, heard the fifteen 
year old student. Flier was so 
impressed that he arranged for 
the young artist to study with him 
in Moscow. Because private 
lessons were not available in the 
Soviet Union and Mark was too 
young to enter the Moscow 
Conservatory, Flier joined the 
faculty of a music school in 

Moscow, just to be able to teach 
the gifted young pianist. 

After a year of study, Mark 
Zeltser entered famed Moscow 
Conservatory, excused from 
customary examinations. 
Studying with Flier for the next 
seven years, he graduated from 
the Conservatory in 1971 with the 
equivalent of a Ph.D. The Zeltser 
family emigrated to the United 
States in 1976. When not on tour, 
Mr. Zeltser resides in New York

SGA Amendment 
Is Unethical 

Dear Centenary Student Body: 

I have addressed this letter to 
the entire Centenary Student 
body because I feel each student 
should be aware of the problems 
of a certain large group of 
students. The group I'm con- 
cerned with includes all students 
who live in T. L. James dor- 

This semester, a new rule has 
been put into practice which 
means that each time a student is 
locked out of her room and calls 
an R.A., (either on duty or off 
duty) that student must pay 50 
cents to reenter her room. This 
may seem like a very small 
amount of money to you but to me 
it is a soft drink, a load of dry 
clothes and two video games 
while two forgotten keys is a 
dollar, a movie, two soft drinks or 
fifty pieces of gum. 

As far as I know in every other 
dorm on campus the R.A. will 
gladly open a locked door. Are 
the R.A.'s in James special? 

The students living in James 
dorm elected the dorm council 
and I understood that to mean the 
dorm has a representative type 
government. One in which each 
student class elects a peer and 
that group of peers decides the 
laws which govern the residential 
hall. The R.A.'s position is to 
enforce the law. I feel as if the 
residents of James hall haven't 
been represented in the birth of 
this law. 

I understand the problem is 
with women who do not wish to 

have the responsibility of a key 
and so they leave it in their rooms 
and wake-up an R.A. when they 
come in at three in the morning 
and wish to enter their rooms. I 
do not want to be punished for 
these girls and I don't think that 
by punishing me they are being 
taught anything of importance. 

I also had the impression that 
unlocking doors was an R.A.'s 
duty as it is in the other dorms. 
When I first came to Centenary I 
was told my R.A. would be like a 
good neighbor, at home if I lock 
myself out my good neighbor 
always lets me have the spare 

The R.A. is paid for the job of 
being an R.A. by having a free, 
private room. However, it seems 
like the James R.A.'s are not 
expected to accomplish the 
entire job and are still being 
paid the same free private room. 

I do believe that something 
needs to be done to punish those 
who consistently forget their 
keys but that the present rule is 
inadequate. I think that with all 
of the great minds running 
around this campus surely 
someone can come up with a 
better idea as to how to keep a 
record of who has forgotten their 
key and how many times it has 

Perhaps the present R.A. 
selection committee could be 
sure and pick R.A.'s who really

Fellow Classmates, 

I am running for the position 
of Secretary in the special SGA 
election today. I feel that if I am 
elected to this position I will 
serve the students of Centenary 
in a way that they can be proud 
of. My qualifications include 
offices in High School Student 
Government, P. E. Majors Club 
and Dorm Council. I am a very 
conscientious person and will do 
my best to serve the Centenary 
Student Body. 

I would appreciate your vote of 
confidence in me today as you 
cast your ballot for SGA 
Secretary during Lunch and 
Dinner in the Cafe. 

Thank you, 
Debbie Patterson 

I would first like to make clear 
that this article is a personal 
editorial. It in no way represents 
the attitudes or official opinions 
of the Conglomerate Staff. 

Today, the controversial-SGA 
Constitution Amendment 
proposals are being presented to 
us for consideration. It is vital 
and essential that we estimate 
carefully one of these proposals 
with extreme deliberation. Ar- 
ticle IV, A 1) presently states: No 
student may serve on more than 
one of the following bodies: 

a) SGA 

b) Judicial Board 

c) Student-Faculty Discipline 

d) Honor Court 

e) Dorm Council 

This particular article is the 
keystone to the separation of 
powers between our student 
government and the judicial 
process. I must admit that it may 
not be necessary to protect our 
democratic ideals and in- 
stitutions from diabolical power- 
hungry students, but this one 
principle in self-government is an 
invaluable precept that cannot be 
tossed away idlely. I cannot 
impress upon you the need to 
maintain this significant gap 
between legislative and judicial 
processes enough. 

Student government's basic 
purpose is to coordinate student 
activities, to serve as a mediator 
between students, faculty, and 
administration, and to provide 

for a forum of student ideas, 
complaints, and requests. There 
is no significant sign of student 
desire to allow this tragic 
mistake to take place. On the 
contrary, many students, once 
completely informed of the 
situation, were appalled at the 
idea of the same students holding 
power in SGA and the judicial 
process at our college. Further 
more, they seem to share the 
opinion that it deprives students 
the equal chance of obtaining 
responsible positions on campus. 
This proposal destroys the op- 
portunity for students with some 
impressive talents, but less- 
forward personalities, to join 
organizations and contribute to 
the life and service of the college 
and its students. 

I would like to inform the 
students of an unfair and totally 
unethical interpretation of this 
proposed constitutional change. 
In last week's Conglomerate, an 
SGA ad for today's election 
presented the candidates for SGA 
Secretary and all five amend- 
ments to the SGA Constitution. 
However, the fifth amendment 
proposal was printed in a way, 
that presented the proposal 
unscrupulously. This in- 
terpretation may have been 
drawn-up unknowingly in that 
form. Nonetheless, it never 
states the proposed change. It 
merely presents how the con- 
stitution will appear if it is

Words from Wonderland 

by Betsy Camp 

I have a confession to make. 
I've been watching MTV again. 
And I'm worried about the 

Why am I worried about the 
future and what does MTV have 
to do with it? Have you checked 
out any of those rockers lately? 
We are all familiar with Boy 
George and Cyndi Lauper, but 
they're nothing compared to 
some of the others. 

Take Marilyn for instance. If 
you haven't heard of him, you 
will. He is an old roommate of 
Boy George (what do you ex- 
pect?), and has long blonde hair. 
He tries to emulate the late 
Marilyn Monroe. Just like 
thousands of other women. Alice 
Cooper had nothing on this guy. 

How about Grace Jones? Her 
neo-male looks are enough to 
make any mother lock her 
daughter away in an ivory tower. 
And Annie Lennox of the Euryth- 
mics, although beautiful, is 

certainly no prom Queen. 

Can you imagine what our 
children are going to look like? I 
can see it now. . .dressing my 
kids for school ten years from 

My youngest, Boy Joey, will be 
arranging his acrylic dread-locks 
(reggae hairstyle) and searching 
frantically for his purple' 
eveshadow which is sister has 
stolen to accentuate her high 
cheekbones and contrast her 
fuchsia hair. 

Boy (that's what his friends 
call him), will then run 
screaming into my room, crying 
so much his mascara is running, 
and I'll have to console him by 
promising to buy him new 
eyeshadow. And new fingernail 

Then my daughter, Marni, will 
complain that her new suit does 
not fit properly. The pants are too 
small. It is possible to tell that 
. she has limbs underneath. I 
further upset her by commenting 

that her blonde roots ar« 
showing, and she refuses to got" 
school until she has a new dy* 
job. ' 

I touch up her hair with an old 
lipstick, readjust her custom 
made sideburns, and send her t° 
her room to finish dressing. 

Boy appears at the breakf^ 
table and inquires about his F 
Karma. The chameleon is in W 5 
cage, as usual. Ever since B«J 
wore him to school strapped to 
plaid nightshirt, Karma has be*" 
shifting his colors in a constant 
changing, schizophrenic fashi* 

Boy eats his breakfast of ^ 
mix and a special gelatin for 
fingernails, waits for Marni, ; 
walks to the school bus. 

I sigh contenedly as I watch ft 

children depart. Out of the 

chen window, I see Boy talk' 
with his kindergarten friends a 
Marni giggling as an older, tW 
grade boy compliments her 
her clothing.

The Pretenders and The Alarm „ ? lveB "f cit ! l f 

Work Hard For The Money 

The Alarm and the Pretenders 
may be the best combination 
since pretzels and reeb. They are 
certainly the most exciting 
concert lineup to come along in 
quite awhile. Both groups per- 
form with an intensity rarely 
seen these days. In Dallas on 
March 18, they gave ample 
evidence of their abilities. 

The alarm, a quartet from 
Rhyl, Wales, opened the show. 
They performed songs from their 
new album, Declaration, as well 
as their self-titled debut EP. 
Their sound is hard to pinpoint: 
Imagine U2 and Big country 
mixed with early Bob Dylan and 
you will have some idea. But 
nothing could fully describe the 
stirring energy of their live 
performance. They delivered 
their rousing, anthemic songs 
with a vengeance. This band has 
more on its mind than the girl 
next door. They address such 
weightly subjects as world peace, 
war, and apatnetic youth. 
Throughout the night they 
exhorted the crowd to wake up 
and "take a stand". This may 

sound a bit idealistic but they are 
sincere. It is hard for even the 
most cynical listener to remain 

Subject matter was not the only 
thing that set the alarm apart. 
Their main instruments are 
acoustic guitars, but if you think 
they can't rock, guess again. 
Their performance had more 
energy than a dozen heavy metal 
bands. By the end of their 
segment, they had made 
believers of most of the audience. 

After a thirty minute in- 
termission, the Pretenders took 
the stage. A lesser band could 
have never matched the opening 
performance by the alarm. But 
the Pretenders proved to be 
every bit as enthralling, though 
in a different way. The Preten- 
ders derive their force from their 
leader. Chrissie Hynde. Whether 
playing hard, soft, or in between, 
Hynde's intriguing songs and 
sultry mannerisms generated 
their own kind of excitement. 
Backing her up were drummer 
Martin Chambers and new 
members guitarist Robbie 

Mcintosh and bassist Malcolm 
Foster. Touring member Rupert 
Black supplied various 
keyboards. The stage design was 
simple yet striking. Martin 
Chamber's drum kit (which 
looked rather like an albino 
octopus) was the focal point of 
the stage. Tasteful lighting 
complemented the songs though 
not overpowering them. 

The Pretenders played a cross 
section of selections from their 
albums. Particular standouts 
were "Up the Neck", "Time The 
Avenger", and "Back on the 
Chain Gain." Though Hynde stole 
much of the show Mcintosh's 
guitar work was often featured as 
was Chamber's drumming. The 
set temporarily lost momentum 
mid-way through but the band 
quickly rallied. After their hour- 
long segement, they were called 
back for two encores, "Thum- 
bellina" and "Brass in Pocket". 
Then, like all good showmen, 
they left the crowd wanting

Monday night at 8 o'clock, 
Centenary music major Leslie 
Downs gave his senior piano 

Playing a selection that ranged 
from Baroque to Romantic, 
Downs gave his recital in partial 
fulfillment of the requirements 
for the Bachelor of Music in 
performance degree. 

"He plays very musically," 
said Dr. Glenn Williford, a 
member of the Hurley faculty. 
"He shapes his phrases well, 
pays attention to detail, and is 
also very expressive." 

Downs began with the Sonata 
in G major, by Scarlatti, then 
selections from Bach and 
Beethoven. Following an in- 
termission, he concluded with 
pieces by Ravel and Chopin. 

After graduating, Down's plans 
include further studies at 
graduate school.

she would assume that some 
wonderful person had proposed a

eradicates separation of powers. 
I appeal to each student, to

Traditions at Centenary 

As I look out from the 
greenhouse on the top of Mickle 
Hall, one of the first structures I 
see is Brown Chapel, the 
traditional site of convocations 
and official proclamations. 
According to another tradition, 
there is a tennis ball wedged 
somewhere near the top of the 
steeple. This object was 
presumably lodged there during 
the 1960s when a certain 
fraternity's cannon was fired 
during rush week. And this 
legend has become one of the 
better known yarns on campus 
and given another twenty years it 
may have become established 
dogma. Then I'll wager that the 
myth will have changed enough 
to claim that if the long- 
distintigrated tennis ball is ever 
removed, the entire steeple will 
fall. Still, I have yet to un- 
derstand why a tall tale can 
become a tradition, and a legend 
become established fact in such 
modern times. 

Tradition has it that the 
original cornerstone of the 
academic building in Jackson, 
La., was brought to Centenary's 
Shreveport campus a number of 

years ago and was a familiar 
fixture at college events. It 
subsequently vanished during a 
ballgame and has never been 
seen again. No one has yet solved 
this riddle. 

But no one is buried in the S.D. 
Morehead memorial behind 
Hamilton Hall, nor do the Rose 
Gardens hide the ruins of a long- 
vanished civilization. Neither are 
there ghosts in the attic of Mc- 
Gale Library, although one can 
often hear strange noises 
overhead on the second floor 
under the bell tower. Still, these 
stories persist and gain an im- 

mortality of their own. I know 
modern man should not believe in 
such superstition, but we really 
haven't changed since the 
medeval times when people were 
very tradition-conscious. But 
there is a thin line between 
tradition and superstition, and 
between fact and fantasy. And we 
need to realize this. Traditionally 
I will go to communion on Sunday 
wearing a coat and tie, although 
such clothes tend to be impratical 
for nearly everything else. And 
traditionally, the clergy will 
wear their stiff white collars and 
robes. But I like this tradition. 
However, some traditions have 

been altered to the point that they 
are meaningless vituals and 
hollow superstitions. 

In the meanwhile, I would like 
to stary my own tradition. Ac- 
cording to legend, all the old 

typewriters on campus go to the 
room next to the Conglomerate 
office to die in the fashion of the 
Elephants' graveyard. Our staff 
is open to suggestions on this one.

Well, for anybody who doesn't 
know by now there are twelve 
new initiates, better known as 
actives to the KA Chapter! 

These distinguished actives, 
were the best pledge class to 
come through this school in a 
long time. They list as follows: 
Craig Buettner, Joey Kray, Jeff 
Hilder, Jan Willie Vandenberg, 
Roy Prestwood, Paul Swindle, 
Richard Eglin, Nolan Gregory, 
Frank Carroll, John Lee, Chris 
Edwards, and Alan Barlow. Keep 
these names in mind, for they 
will be the dominant force in 
years to come. Now for the 
general bull that this column is 
famous for. Zeta formal was a 
blurr for most of us, but due to 
headaches and hangovers 
Sunday, we think we had a good 
time! NickNolfe, Jeff Robertson, 
Brian Dempsey and David 
Hodges are ZTA Big Brothers in 
case you didn't know. The KA's 
eagerly await Softball season due 
to our general lack of basketball 
skills! Hitting a ball with a piece 
of wood is far more interesting 
than throwing a ball through a 
basket! The KA's are protesting 
the open container law by seeing 
just how many containers they 
can open and still walk a crooked 
line. The police don't realize that 
we like to have a cold brew in 
each hand while watching our 
fellow brother try to battle the 
world's worst drivers here in 
Shreveport! They never believe 
our story so we simply spout off 
the flathead creed and confuse 
them with our drunken logic.

Centenary Baseball Is Red Hot 

tenary College's baseball team is 
redhot. The Gents, winners of 
their last six and last eleven of 
twelve games, meet Grambling 
State University in two seven 
inning contests at 1 p.m., 
Tuesday, March 20 at Gram- 

The Gents are coming off a 
three game sweep over the 
University of Arkansas-Little 
Rock at Centenary Park, raising 
their record to 13-4 overall and 4-2 
in the western division of the 
Trans America Athletic Con- 
ference (TAAC). 

Starting with Grambling, the 
Gents will play nine games in two 
weeks on the road. Following two 
games with Grambling, the 
Gents will meet Northwestern 
State University for a three game 
set, one on Friday and two on 
Saturday, then they meet Nor- 
theast Louisiana in a single game 
on March 28, and end it with a 
three game series with UALR on 
March 30 and 31. 

The Gents will start John 
Mohon in game one and Tracy 
Butler in game two against the 

Grambling Tigers. Mohon is 2-0 
on the year with a 2.00 earned run 
average. Mohon has onlypitched 
in nine innings after coming back 
from a dislocated knee cap he 
suffered two days before the start 
of the 1984 season, but has struck 
out 10. 

Butler has also seen limited 
mound duty because of a sore 
right shoulder he suffered last 
September. Butler has pitched in 
only three innings, giving up one 
run and striking out two. Ac- 
cording to head coach Dr. James 
C. Farrar, he will only pitch 80 
pitches and will come out, no 
matter what inning he's in or the 

As a team, the Gents are hit- 
ting at a .351 clip. Four Gents are 
hitting over .400 and three are 
hitting over the .300 mark. Jim 
Kubik, an all-TAAC second 
baseman last year, leads the 
team with a .492 average, 
followed by Jim Goldman at 
shortstop with a .431 average. 
Rightfielder Billy Harwell is 
hitting .420 and designated hitter 
Andy Olson is hitting at a smooth 

Centerfielder Randy Williams 
is at .377, backup catcher Louis 
Parker at .333, and leftfielder 
Troy Washko at .339. The Gents 
have also hit 22 home runs in only 
17 games and are off to their best 
start ever under fifth year head 
coach Farrar. 

Grambling is 9-4 on the year 
and 0-2 in the western division of 
the SWAC. The Tigers will 
counter with Hollis Brent and 
Robert Williams on the hill. Both 
Brent and Williams are making 
their first starts of the 1984 

The Gents will meet Nor- 
thwestern State University at 2 
p.m., in a signle game Friday 
afternoon in Natchitoches, La., in 
a TAAC game. Both teams will 
play a double header on Saturday 
beginning at 1 p.m.

University squad at 2:00. Then 
the Ladies travel to Paris Junior 

College for a match to begin at 

The Ladies are at the present 1- 
3, but the losses have been close. 
Leading the Ladies is number 4

slot. In addition are Lynn Hanson 
at 2-2, Sandy MacMillian 1-3, 
Edie Carell 0-4, Lynn Hanson 2-2, 

and Tammie Kelley 0-4. 

Doubles teams have struggled 
thus far this season. The team of 
Evert and MacMillian lead with 
their 2-0 record closely followed 
by Hanson and Montgomery at 2- 

1. Kelley and Evert have 1-0 
record to their credit. Rounding

Webbing Resigns 

Dr. Daffyd Webbing, president 
of Sedentary, has resigned from 
his post after seemingly endless 
years of service. 

Webbing conducted a press 
conference this morning in his 
lavish office which includes a 
Jacuzzi, well-stocked bar, and 
state-of-the-art home entertain- 
ment center. 

Webbing was leaning back in 
his custom-made leather chair 
and puffing on a bootleg Cuban 
cigar as he made his announce- 

"I'm going back to Wales to 
cleanse my spirit," he said. 
His wife, Runny, dressed ex- 

quisitely in a Dior original, held 
her husband's hand as he con- 
tinued his speech. 

"I'm going to live in an 
abandoned coal mine, read Dylan 
Thomas, and carve religious 
objects out of odd bits of coal. 

"I do not plan on being a 
hermit, though. I will go into town 
a couple of nights a week and tell 
glowing tales of America for a 
pint or two of the local ale. 

"My wife will take in washing 
to make what money we need for 
food and such." 

All in the crowd who gathered 
were shocked by the announce- 

The Earl of Labor expressed 
great distress and displeasure, 
saying that he would have ex- 
pected Webbing to make such a 
radical change. 

"I mean, like, this is totally 
bizarre," the Earl said. "For 
sure, it's cool, but man, I'm like, 
blown away." 

The dimunitive biology profes- 
sor, Dr. McPheremone, wiped 
away tears from his eyes as he 
lamented the fact that Webbing 
had not chosen to retire in Costa 

Philosophy professor, Coxs- 
wain Hughes, was equally dis- 

"They're aren't any good 
Welsh philosophers," he said. 

Handy Teehee, admissions 
dude, said he thought enrollment 
would drop as a result of Web- 
bing's retirement. 

"He was a great draw. Most of 
our prospective students have 
never seen a Welsh person be- 
fore. What are they going to say 
when they find out that our 
authentic Welsh person is living 
in an abandoned coal mine?" 

Webbings children will stay in 
Shrevemortuary as they are al- 
lergic to coal dust and cheap ale. 

When asked where he will live, 
Webbing said: "I don't know 
exactly, but the name of the town 

will have alot of l's, w's, and y's 
in it." 

A farewell ceremony will be 
held just prior to the Webbing's 
departure. Melted cheese on 
toast will be served and the 
Sedentary Collage Chore will sing 
songs appropriate to the occa- 

Choremaster Bill Duress said 
that he has few songs in mind at 
the moment. 

"The only ones I can think of 
are that goodbye song from The 
Sound of Music, and "Coal 
Miner's Daughter." 

Webbing will be leaving as soon 
as beer is sold on campus. 

President of Vice Gunned Down By Campus Security 

Jarrel Flawless, President of 
Vice for the college was shot and 
killed in front of the Caf as he 
attempted to walk to his office 
with the contents of a partially 
chewed chocolate chip cookie in 
his mouth. For this heretofore 
unprecedented mockery of cafe- 
teria rules which state that no 
food or drink may be carried out 
by any person who eats in the 
cafeteria, Flawless was awarded 
six .357 Magnum slugs in the 

back. As he lay there in a pool of 
blood he was heard to quote "if I 
cut, do I not bleed..." as cafeteria 
workers carried him back to the 
sausage grinder. 

Flawless' untimely death 
leaves a very real vacuum in 
Centenary administration be- 
cause Flawless was known to be 
interested in the now-vacated 
position of President. Sic Transit 
Gloria! May he abide in the red 
beans and rice forever!

Mary Jo and to the other candi-

race for the proposals of the SGA 

constitution, the students voted to 
pass each proposal. Likewise, 
each proposal of the Honor Court 
constitution passed. Voter turn- 
out on the March 22nd election 
day was a 37 percent, one of the

Politburo Minutes 

by Flash M. Raker 

(This summarizes the unof- 
ficial, censored minutes of the 
Tuesday March 27 meeting of the 
Student Politburo and in no way 
represents the official minutes. 
The titles have been changed to 
protect the guilty). 

The meeting was called to 
order by President Baubman, 
who then took her place as the 
Politburo's figurehead. Since all 
official information is con- 
fidential, officer reports were not 
given. There are no unbiased 
committees so such reports are 
also omitted. 

Under old business, Defense 
Minister Tomassov again 
questioned the operations of KGB 
Director Anderpov, stating, 
"he's too powerful ... we should 
control all search and seizure so 
as to facilitate our further growth 
and gain, for our people of 
course." After much discussion 
and deliberation, it was deter- 
mined that the KGB would from 
hence forth fall under the direct 
authority of the Defense 
Minister. Anderpov's continued 
existence will be dicussed on a 
later date, if he makes it. On 
other business, General- 
Secretary Fowla proposed 
another raise increase so that the 

officials could sponsor their 
upcoming tour of the Democratic 
United States as part of their new 
income program "Soviet's 
Singing Ambassabors." Although 
this is stated as the primary 
reason, there was some question 
as to whether or not the General- 
Secretary's new condo in Keiv 
had some influence on her 
proposal. After little 

deliberation, it was decided that 
all salaries would increase 200 
percent making the new salaries: 
Premier-Chairman of the 
Presidium $30,000,000, General- 
Secretary of the Party 
$27,000,000, Defense Minister 
$24,000,000, President $21,000,000, 
and Comrades $15,000,000. (All of 
the above figures are given in 
there U.S. dollar equivalent). 

Under new business, Comrade 
Echolli proposed a Rose Garden 
for Siberia in memory of 
departing President Webbing 
(see related story) who has 
served the party well. The motion 
was seconded by Comrade Liens, 
then opened for discussion, in 
Russian of course. Once the 
gibbering had ended, it was made 
known that funds derived from 
the now nonexisting KGB 
Directors office would be fed into 
the winter wonderland. Lastly, 
Defense Minister Tomassov

Maharajah Fubar to buy College 

His Supreme Holiness, the 
all-powerful and all-knowing 
master of the universe and 
strange visitor from another 
country, the Maharajah Fubar is 
attempting to buy the college 
from the Methodist Church such 
that his league of cosmic con- 
ciousness may have its head- 
quarters deep in the Bible Belt. 
His corporation, chartered in the 
state of New Jersey, has offered 
the sum of $113 billion dollars to 
the trustees, who will use the 
money for the construction of a 

landfill near the new Cross Lake 
Bridge. The Maharajah plans to 
rename the college the Maharah- 
jah Fubar Advanced Training 
Camp and Tourist Stop for the 
Liberation of the Free Sprit that 
Abides in the Minds of Manicured 
Lawns. The Fubarians, as his 
disciples are called, live off of a 
strict diet of overcooked vege- 
tables, undercooked rice, and a 
concoction known to outsiders as 
"the mystery meat." Men and 
women are not allowed to look 
upon one another unless the 

summer equinox is at hand. His 
group devoutly worships plants 
and considers them a diety, with 
the Rose the holy of holies behind 
His Supreme Holiness and Chief 
Executive Officer the Maharajah 
Fubar. It is no small wonder that 
the college met nearly every 
requirement for the group. 

The Maharajah plans to rebuilt 
the gold dome with 14 karat gold 
plate to facilitate its use for the 
singular worship of rose bushes. 
The Smith Building and adjacent 
Brown Chapel will be converted 

into a mill for the preparation of 
rose hips for religious ceremon- 
ies Mickle Hall will be used for 
the production of fertilizer, and 
Magale Library and the Hurley 
School of Music will be razed to 
pave the way for more garden 
space. Hamilton Hall will remain 
as the administration building, 
where His Holy of Holies, the 
Chief Executive Officer will 
manage the affairs of his group, 
which solicits donations at every 

major airport in the United 
States. The SUB will be convert- 
ed to the Media Center, and the 
Radio Station will be used to 
broadcast the Maharajah Fubar 
Show to the Spritually Starved 
Decadent Masses of the Bible 
Belt so that They Might Become 
Contributors to the Corporation. 
The Marjorie Lyons Playhouse 
will be used to train "solicitors" 
for airport terminals and shop- 
ping malls.

If you train for certain specialties, the government will release 
you from 1/3 of your indebtedness (or $1,500, whichever is 
greater) for each year of active duty. 

Obviously, a three-year enlistment cancels 100% of your

I got hungry the other day. So, 
since I had just passed Ralph 'N' 
Earl's quaint little joint, I decid- 
ed to go back two steps, do not 
pass go, and try it out. They have 
really neat decorations. Lots of 
naked lightbulbs, naked tables, 
and naked waitresses. And the 
food's really great, too. Ralph 
and Earl use their favorite home 
recipes. Their favorite is the 

peanut butter and tuna. I like the 
open face tuna, well-spread, on 
rye, myself. Ralph makes up all 
the recipes and Earl cooks them. 
Then the waitresses serve them. 
Ralph is really good at making up 
food. And Earl is really good at 
cooking it. And the waitresses are 
really good, too. The best thing 
about Ralph 'N' Earl's is the 
pretty pictures of food all over 

the walls. There are more life- 
like pictures of food on the floor, 
though. It really adds to the 
atmosphere, y'know? The prices 
are kinda high, but after you eat 
dessert, you don't mind. Ralph 
and Earl accept all credit cards...

by Quenby Smith 

Ever since spring arrived, I've 
been hearing people repeatedly 
saying, "Let's do something 
Fun." "Boy, we're going to have 
Fun." "Oh, that's not Fun, I want 
to have Fun!" What I want to 
know is What is Fun? And is it 
possible to have Fun at Sedentary 
or in the surrounding area? 

I looked it up in the dictionary. 
Fun; 1) Sport; merriment; play- 
ful action or speech. 2) Usually 
implies the eliciting of laughter 
but may imply merely a lack of 
serious purpose. 

I made a list of some of the 
types of Fun that I know: Fun in 
the Sun; Fun and Games or, Fun 
Fun Fun till your Daddy takes 
your T-Bird away, or Dr. Webb 
takes your charter away, or both. 

Here are some suggestions that 

What is fun 

are sure to provide more hours of 
enjoyment than an economics 
class, or even being brought 
before the Judicial Board. 

— Helping the security guard 
supplement his income by assist- 
ing him in his search for the coins 
under the couches in the SUB. 

— Going to the Coffeehouse for 
a morning dose of Rise and Shine 
hangover relief medicine. 

— Going to a 9 hour music 
recital at Hurley Music Hall. 

— Eating in the Cafeteria. 

— Watching Dr. Cox eat his 
sack lunch. 

— Stepping on pinecones. 

— Stepping on squirrels. 

— Going over to Dr. Webb's 
office every day at noon and 
singing a rousing rendition of the 
Welsh National Anthem to him. 

— Mistaking the Dean of 
Students for a fishmonger. 

— Listening to the gossip in the 
Administration Building. 

— Watching the security 
guards write enormous amounts 
of parking violations, then the 
next day, watching the security 
guards pick up parking violation 
tickets off the ground. 

— Reading article like this. 

— Not reading articles like this. 
Isn't this Fun? 

KJAC off on a tangent (again) 

KJAC are the new call letters of 
Sedentary's radical station. 

The call letters are not the only 
thing which has changed at the 
campus record spinning center. 
A new station manager, program 
director, and format have also 
been installed. 

The letters, KJAC, represent a 
totally new idea in programming 
— pure Michael Jackson. Only 
that music which has been writ- 
ten, produced or is sung by 
Michael Jackson will be played. 

New manager Michelle Jaxon 
is overwhelmed by the response 
the change has garnered. 

"I've got this feeling some- 

body's watching (over) me," 
Jaxon said. "It's just a thriller. 
Those other radio stations can 
just beat it." 

Program director Billy Gene 
says that he's "just got to be 
startin' somethin'." 

He has already proved his point 
by initiating the first in a series of 
contests to promote the station. 

"Our first contest will have a 
grand prize of $10,000 worth of 
plastic surgery. Next, we'll have 
a drawing for a year's supply of 
female hormones for some lucky 

But ugly rumors have already 
begun to circulate and the new 
staff is the target for this gossip. 

A mysterious fire broke out and 
burned Jaxon's scalp and hair. 
No cause for the fire has been 
discovered as yet. 

The second rumour deals with 
the manner in which Gene was 
appointed to his post. 

F. Cheerio, former program 
director, has charged that Gene 
was given the job because of a 
romantic affiliation with station 
manager, Jaxon. 

In answer to this charge, Jaxon 
said: "Billy Gene is not my lover. 
He's just a guy who says that I 
am the one." 

Say, say, say. It seems that 
Billy Gene is just a PYT who 
needs some TLC.

Orpheus is a modern version of 
the legend of Orpheus and Eury- 
dice and their involvement with 
Death and the angel Heurtebise. 
In the film, Orpheus is a success- 
ful poet envied by others. Mar- 
ried to Eurydice, Orpheus finds 
himself plunged into a surreal, 
fantastic world when he encoun- 
ters a mysterious woman 
(Death) who travels in a chauf- 
fered Rolls-Royce, accompanied 
by two mysterious, leather- jac- 

keted motorcyclists. 

Cocteau said about the film: 
"Orpheus is a film that could 
exist only on the screen. I tried to 
use the camera not like a pen but 
like ink. I interwove many myths. 
It is a drama of the visible and 
the invisible. In Orpheus, Death 
is a spy who falls in love with the 
man on whom she is spying. She 
condemns herself in order to help 
the man she is duty bound to 
destroy. The man is saved but 
Death dies; it is the myth of

As the anticipation of Cry 
Ortega formal builds, we are 
forced to contain ourselves long 
enough to put pen to paper to 
create this greek beat. The 
infamous Plate-O-Fly Ortega 
softball team lost by a slim 
margin to ROTC but never fear, 
we will ultimately prevail. Speak- 
ing of the Plate-O-Fly 's, we would 
like to thank them for donating a

Congratulations to the new Zeta

the Eek mice races fun or what? 
Rumor has it that many good 
prizes were won by all. Congrat- 
ulations to our carnation of the

awesome job on formal weekend 
this year. Scheduled events in-

tend formal, remember- invita- 
tions must be presented at the 

A good time will be had by all. 

We are eagerly looking forward 
to our formal. It should be at least 
as exciting as the final thoes of a 
dying water buffalo in heat. It 
will be hard to top last year, but 
we're trying. 

Congratulations to the gym- 
nasts. By the way, who are they? 

Don't forget to meet every day 
this week for Jane Fonda exer- 
cises. And remember to work out 

on the weights upstairs in the 
house weight room. We need to be 
in shape for spring intramurals 
so we can smash everyone else. 


The infamous Rat Races be- 
came a vicious circle, as always. 
Leroy's cousin, Elroy the Cat, 
showed up at just the right time 
and gave those rats some incen- 
tive for winning. Some of the 
more retarded rats still couldn't 
tell their head from their tail, so 
ran back to the start, where the 
official starter helped out. Any- 
way, Elroy's not going to be 
hungry in a long time, and we all 
really enjoyed the bite-sized bar- 
beque the next day. We'd like to 
thank all who O.D.'d for their 
help. And Valerie.

We are also looking forward all 
to our May Lake party all and

good night all, take it all, and 
have it all. 


Yes, we're still pretty P.O.'d 
about all those creeps who show-

We really enjoyed meeting all

hearing speeches, eating boxes, 
hearing speeches, watching 
wonderful alumni skits, hearing 
speeches, singing songs-to-waste- 
time-by, and hearing more

about it. We Z, T& A's know how 
to have fun, don't we?

Centenary's Hit Squad for Real 

by Bill Roberts, SID 

SHREVEPORT, LA. — After 22 
games into the 1984 season, the 
Centenary College baseball team 
is hitting a team record .331, with 
three Gents hitting over the .400 
plateau and four others over .300. 
The Gents, 14-8 overall and 5-4 in 
the western division of the Trans 
America Athletic Conference 
(TAAC) , are off to their best start 
ever under sixth year head coach 
Dr. James C. Farrar. 

"They've hit the heck out of the 
baseball," head coach Farrar 
admits about his 1984 hit squad. 
"I didn't expect them to hit the 
ball this early. They're good 
hitters and they've got some skill, 
but because of our 4-1-4 semester 
schedule, we don't get our kids 
until February second. By that 
time, most schools have already 
been out for at least a couple of 

"They're going to hit the ball." 
Farrar added. "There are going 
to be some games when good 
pitching is going to shut us down, 
but not every game. I didn't 
expect this team to hit the way 
they are, and I can't really 

explain why they're hitting so 
well. I do know they are gutty and 
they don't like to lose. They won't 
just roll over and lie on their 

Offensively, the Gents are 
averaging 7.3 runs per contest. 
They are 6-6 against NCAA 
Division I opponents, with an 
inspiring 14-9 victory over the 
University of Houston, an 8-2 
decision over Nicholls State, and 
three wins over Arkansas-Little 
Rock, the Gents scored 30 runs 
and banged out 35 hits in a three 
game series against UALR. 

Leading the attack is designat- 
ed hitter-catcher Andy Olson. 
Olson, a 5-foot-9, 185-pound, 
junior college transfer, is cur- 
rently on an eleven game hitting 
streak and is hitting .488, ninth 

All-TAAC second baseman Jim 
Kubik is second on the team with 
a .459 batting average, 16th 
nationally (tied with Ron Best of 
New Mexico State). Kubik is 
followed by shortstop Jim Gold- 
man with a .409 average, right- 
fielder Billy Harwell is hitting at 
a .391 clip, while backup catcher 
Louis Parker is at .333, center- 

fielder Randy Williams .324, and 
leftfielder Troy Washko .320. 

Kubik leads the Gents in at bats 
with 85, hits with 39, total bases 
with 57, and tied with Goldman in 
RBI's with 22. Kubik, a switch- 
hittng specialist, has hit success- 
fully in all but two games this 
year. He has put together five 
three-hit and nine two-hit games. 
In 85 at bats, the 6-0, 170, senior, 
has only four strikeouts. 

"Kubik is one of the best hitters 
I've coached at Centenary." Far- 
rar said about Kubik. "He has 
real good concentration from 
both sides of the plate. He's a 
better righthanded hitter, but we 
haven't faced too many lefthand- 
ers this year. He has some skill 
and could play some professional 

In addition, Kubik is second on 
the team in doubles with seven, 
tied with Harwell in triples with 
one, tied with three others in 
home runs with three, and tied 
with Goldman in RBI's with 22. 
He is currently riding a six game 
hitting streak. Twice he has had 
seven game hitting streaks. 
The Gents are solid up the 
middle. At shortstop, Goldman 

offers not only power, but consis- 
tency. Goldman, a 5-9, 170-pound, 
senior, leads the Gents in home 
runs with six, walks with 17, and 
tied with Kubik in RBI's with 22. 
In addition to handling the mid- 
dle, Goldman is also the Gents' 
top relief pitcher. He is 1-1 on the 
year with a team-leading 3.46 
earned run average. 

Harwell, despite missing three 
games with a pulled muscle, 
leads the team in runs scored 
with 25, doubles with eight, stolen 
bases with three, and tied in 
triples with one. Harwell, a 5-10, 
160, senior, had a ten game 
hitting streak snapped in the first 
game at Northwestern State on 
March 24, but came back in the 
nightcap to pick up two hits and 
start another streak. 

Evn though the Gents are off to 
a recor-setting batting average 
(Centenary team batting average 
for a single season was set in 1976 
at .304), there is good news for 
coach Farrar. Last year's All- 
TAAC catcher Wayne Rathbun 
has yet to explode and show how 
he hit .339 during the 1983 season, 
and starting first baseman Eddie 
Crone has been hospitalized with 

Coach Farrar's mob of outlandish misfits throws a party to celebrate their long hair, 
because tomorrow they will all have crew cuts. Photo by Boob Thomas. 



This Week 

The Centenary men's and 
women's tennis teams wiD be in 
action this week. The men's team 
hosts East Texas Baptist College 
at 3 p.m., Tuesday, March 27, and 
Louisiana Tech at 2 p.m., Wed- 
nesday. The women's team hosts 
East Texas Baptist College at 3 
p.m., Wednesday, and McNeese 
State University at 1 p.m., Thurs- 

The men's tennis team will 
start the week off with a 3-7 
record, while the women are 1-4 
on the season. Joe Prather is the 
only Gent netter over the .500 
mark, with a 7-4 spring record. 
He is 16-11 in all sets. 

The women are led by Liz 
Montgomery, a sophomore, with 
a 3-2 record at the number four 
singles position. She is 7-4 in all 
sets. Two freshmen, Lynn Han- 
son and Macy Evert, are both at 
2-2, with Evert posting a 5-4 
record in all-sets. 

the flu bug and will not be back 
until April first. 

Rathbun is hitting at .274, but 
leads the team in game winning 
hits with three, while Crone is 
hitting at .281, playing in only 11 
games. When these two strong- 
men get it together, offensively 
the Gents are tough outs one 
through nine. Last year, both 
Rathbun (six) and Crone (seven) 
hit 13 home runs, while between 
the two this year, they have hit 
only two, one each. 

"If you asked me to explain 
why this group is hitting and 
playing so well, I would have to 
say it's because they seem to be a 
close ball club." Farrar said 
about the Gent hitters. "To them 
the team comes first. This team 
may be closer than some of the 
other clubs I have had. This team 
has excellent senior leadership. 

"Rathbun, Goldman, Kubik, 
Harwell, and Crone, are the 
seniors and they set the exam- 
ple," Farrar said. "They keep 
the spirit up. After games it's the 
little things. They make sure the 
bats are picked up, keep the spirit 
up, keep charts, making sure 
someone is playing catch with the 
right fielder, all those things they 
take care of." 

"Hitting is a mental thing," 
Kubik said about the Gents surge. 
"Right now we think we can hit 
the ball against anybody in the 
country. We have a lot of team 
spirit and we pick each other up 
all the time. We expect to do well 
this year."

Health Fair 1984: Full of Fitness 

by Tom Ufert 

About two months ago Cen- 
tenary College began to gear-up 
for the 1984 Shreveport Health 
Fair. This Red Cross sponsored 
event was conducted for the first 
time at Centenary with some 
excellent results. In its third 
year, the Health Fair is a 
dramatic attempt to provide 
quality medical diagnsis of 
certain ailements nand to 
distribute beneficial information 
and brochures. 

In January, February, and 
March several Centenary 
volunteers proceeded through 
careful training to prepare for 
the important day. They were 
taught mechanical techniques in 
using the various equipment, 
given useful information on 
every are a and aspect of the fair 
itself. By practicing with other 
volunteers in a similar model 
health fair. During the weekend 
of March 31 & April 1 the SUB 
was prepared and the remaining 
volunteers were briefed. 

Beginning at 9 a.m. volunteers 
from Centenary manned their 
positions along side with medical 
personnel from Physcians & 
Surgeons Hospital, North- 
western School of Nursing, 

Louisiana State University 
Medical Center (LSUMC) and a 
number of community volun- 
teers. Throughout the day, 

participants visited many dif- 
ferent learning centers and 
medical tests. The learning 
centers consisted of 

organizations such as : Alcoholics 
Anonymous (AA), the American 
Cancer Society (ACS), American 
Diabetes Association (ADA), the 
Arthritis Foundation, Catholic 
Community Service (CCS), 
Centenary P.E. Club, Goldman 
School-C-BARC, Mothers Against 
Drugs (MAD), Medical Ther- 
mography Lab, Inc., Mental 
Health Association, NSU School 
of Radiologic Technology, P and 
S Hospital, and Shreveport 
Regional Dialysis. They offered 
much useful information on 
various medical problems from 
alcoholism to kidney disease. As 
well, these booths were manned 
by knowledgable volunteers that 
were capable of aiding the many 
interested entries. 

The various medical booths 
that were present offered 
assistance in obtaining necessary 
medical information concerning 
weight, height, blood pressure, 
eye sight, blood disease, bone 
structure & frame, pulmonary 
functions, diabetes, and 
psychological advice. They 
further provided tests to detect 
such diseases as Glaucoma, 
Anemia, and Diabetes. All of the 
tests were free except for an $8.00 
lab fee for extensive lab work

done on one's blood. The final 
stages involved an evaluation 
sheet to provide fair officials with 
pertenant information on the 
attending members' race, age, 
socio-economic background, 
opinions, questions, and com- 

The event was well attended by 
some 200-250 participants (in- 
cluding about 50 Centenary 
students and faculty). Many of 
the people attending were the 
elderly residents of the Highland 

area desiring free medical tests 
and check-ups for future 
knowledge and reference. The 
fair was catered by Deli-Casino 
and sponsored by the Red Cross 
in cooperation with the 
Shreveport Times, American 
Medical International, First 
National Bank, and the 
Educational Referral and 
Screening Fellowship. The Fair 
will continue all week with sites 
at Mall St. Vincent, Airport Park 
Community Center, Convention 

Center, Pierre Bossier Mall, 
Broadmoor Baptist Church, 
Blanchard United Methodist 
Church, Central Christian 
Church, Southern University, 
and Booker T. Washington High 
School. Having been a marvelous 
success, the 84 Health Fair's 
coordinators Kathy Heard and 
Sue Rubenstein are to be highly 
commended for their noble ef- 
forts in community affairs. 

Jack London In Treys 

If it is true, as some say, that 
good things come in threes, then 
the latest publication by Dr. 
Earle Labor of „ the Centenary 
English Department ought to be 
a hit. The title of Dr. Labor's 
latest book— the third book he has 
published on Jack London (along 
with a half-hundred essays and 
reviews) during the past twenty 
years-is A KLONDIKE 

This new volume contains 

three stories written in 1898, soon 
after London's return from the 
Klondike, and never published 
during his lifetime: "The Devil's 
Dice Box," "The Test: A Klon- 
dike Wooing," and "A Klondike 
Christmas." While "they do not 
possess the narrative depth and 
textural richness which 
distinguish his famous 
masterpieces," Labor observes 
in his Preface to this edition, 
"they are clearly superior to the 
imitative works he was 

struggling to produce during his 
pre-Klondike apprenticeship. 
Moreover, in them we may 
discern the first glimmers of 
those elements which would 
distinguish the writings of 
London's maturity." 

There is another interesting 
story behind these stories. Dr. 
Labor explains that he 
discovered the manuscripts in 
the summer of 1966 when he was 
invited by King Hendricks, 
Chairman of the English 

Department at Utah State 
University, to teach the first 
course on Jack London ever 
offered by an American 
university. "In addition to 
teaching that course," says 
Labor, "I also had the good 
fortune to work with the leading 
London scholar in the country: 
Professor Hendricks had just 
published LETTERS FROM 
JACK LONDON, co-edited by 
Irving Shepard (London's 
nephew and Executor of the 

London Estate), in 1965; and, in 
fact, it was my review of that 
edition in THE SATURDAY 
REVIEW that prompted Dr. 
Hendricks to invite me out to 
Utah State as a Visiting Lecturer 
in 1966." Labor and Hendricks 
collaborated on an article on the 
two versions of London's famous 
story "To Build a Fire," sub- 
sequently published in STUDIES 
IN SHORT FICTION, along with 
the first version of that story. "I

Conglomerate Editors: 

Next time you do the April 
Fools' edition of the 
Conglomerate, make up your 
mind whether or not you are 
going to do a full spoof issue or 
not. An indescriminate mixture 
of legitimate articles and spoof 
statements are confusing to the 
reader, a sign of poor editing, and 
an insult, (and rip-off), to paid 
advertisement in the issue. 

Were the ads announcing 
cheerleader tryouts and the SGA 
Hamel's events legit? I know 
know they were, but such mix- 
ture along with articles on the 
supposed gunning down of the 
V.P. are misleading. 

So congratulations on a poor 
job of editing and a weak-to- 
moderate sense of humor, mixed 
with rude and inappropriate jabs 
at various random vulnerable 
students and college officials. I 
saw much better work in my high 
school newspaper. 
Mike Ricke 

Editor's reply to Mike Ricke 

We apologize for any confusion 
that you may have had with the 
April Fool's issue. Your com- 
plaints are legitimate and we'll 
try to keep them in mind for next 
year. However, your comments 
were the only negative ones 
voiced. With good reviews from 
everyone else, we don't think the 
paper was all that bad. 


The Conglomerate Editors 

Dear Anonymous James Dorm 

We would like to clarify some 
of the points made and answer a 
few of the questions raised in 
your letter to the Editor of March 

First of all, the practice of 
paying 50 cents to be let into your 
room has been in effect for a year 
now. At the beginning of the Fall, 
we started requesting 50 cents 
from those who were locked out 
in hopes of deterring people from 
not taking their keys with them. 
The Dorm Council gave their 
tacit approval. This system has 
apparently worked, for people 
call less frequently. 

Which brings us to our second 
point. It's true we receive calls at 
various hours of the night; the 
problem, however, was incessant 
calls at all hours of the day and 
night. Would you yourself not get 
a little fed up with constantly 
being called upon to open doors 
for people whose roommate had 
"promised to wait" until they got 
back? Or for those who just did 
not feel like carrying a purse? Or 
any of the other numerous 
reasons we've heard? True, there 
were and are legitimate cases 
when folks are locked out. Most 
of the time, however, it was due 
to simply not wanting to carry a 
key. Why should your RA be 
responsible for your key (i.e., 
letting you into your room)? Is it 
not ironic that although you do 
not want to be "punished" for 
those who do not carry their key, 
you were locked out the very 
afternoon your letter appeared in

Dear Editor,

quality of our cafeteria food. I 
think it is absolutely awful. 
Everyday I get up and go to 
breakfast, which is supposedly

vegetables are either soaked in 
two inches of melted bacon 
drippings or boiled to the point of 
tastelessness and then sub- 
merged in warm grease until 
serving time.
